Abstract: Effect of the addition of poly(ethylene glycol) terminated by benzoate (PEG-BA) on the crystallization behavior and dynamic mechanical properties of poly(L-lactic acid) PLLA is studied as compared with poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG-OH). It is found that PEG-BA shows good plasticizing effect and the Flory-Huggins interaction parameter with PLLA is negative. Because PEG-OH having the same degree of polymerization is immiscible with PLLA, the end group in PEG-BA, i.e., benzoate, plays an important role in the miscibility. Furthermore, PEG-BA does not induce the PLLA degradation at melt-processing, whereas PEG-OH leads to the hydrolysis degradation. Finally, the addition of PEG-BA pronounces the crystallization rate of PLLA at low crystallization temperatures and thus enhances the degree of crystallinity. Consequently, the temperature dependence of dynamic mechanical properties are similar to those of isotactic polypropylene.
