Processability of novel resorbable and biocompatible PLLA/Mg composites

Thermal Stability
Issue Date4-Sep-2013
AbstractThe development of PLLA/Mg composites responds to the need of overcoming the lack of bioactivity and low mechanical properties of current bioresorbable biomaterials for medical applications. Their manufacturing will likely require a high temperature step to mould the material by using a compression, extrusion or injection process. Given that previous works have established that metal hydroxides/oxides reduce the thermal stability of PLLA, in order to move forward the PLLA/Mg composite processing and design, the study of the effects of pure Mg particles on PLLA thermal stability and melting behaviour, as well as its effect on the mechanical properties becomes an ineludible goal.
