The purpose of this study is to evaluate the rheological and thermal properties of poly(l-lactic acid) (PLA) composites incorporated with microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) and lignin. The MCC/lignin/PLA composites were fabricated through direct melt compounding. In particular, the effect regarding the...

Fibre reinforced composites have recently received much attention as potential bone fracture fixation applications. Bioresorbable composites based on poly lactic acid (PLA) and phosphate based glass fibre were investigated according to ion release, degradation, biocompatibility and mechanical retention profiles. The...

PLA biocomposites were prepared using three corn cob fractions and a wood fiber as reference. The composites were characterized by tensile testing, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and polarization optical microscopy (POM). Micromechanical deformation processes were followed by acoustic emission measurements....

A variety of complications associated with the use of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) implants, including anchor failure, osteolysis, glenohumeral synovitis, and chondrolysis, have been reported in patients in whom these implants were utilized for labral applications. We report on a large...
In this article, we discuss issues critical to successful application of the electrospinning technique, including control of individual nanofibers to form secondary structures and assembly of nanofibers into 3D architectures.
