We investigated the effect of poly(ethylene‐co‐vinyl alcohol) (EVOH) concentration on the processability and physical properties of thermoplastic starch plasticized with glycerine and water. Waxy maize starch (Amioca), native corn starch (Melogel), and a treated high amylose corn starch (Hylon VII) were employed to explore the effect of starch type on blend properties. All the starches exhibited similar changes in properties with increasing EVOH content. The minimum injection pressure required for fi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
