Bio-based PLA-mb-PBS copolymers are fascinating double crystalline materials whose properties can be tailored by composition, stereocomplexation and thermal treatments. When they are cooled from the melt, the PLA component crystallizes, creating superstructures, such as spherulites or axialites, which constitute templates within which the PBS component crystallizes when the sample is cooled down further. Solution mixtures of PLLA-mb-PBS and PLDA-mb-PBS copolymers, as well as copolymer/homopolymer blends, form stereocomplexes of PLLA and PDLA chain segments. The PBS chain segments can perturb or enhance PLA stereocomplexation depending on their content. View this paper
