Paper Title:
Study on the Shape Memory Behavior of Poly (L-Lactide)
  Abstract

Poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) was synthesized by the ring-opening polymerization of L-lactide and the shape memory behavior was studied using DSC and bending test experiments. The results indicate that the specimen shows the shape memory effect (SME), the small crystalline phase of PLLA and the mobility of amorphous phase may be responsible for the SME. The shape recovery of samples decreases and approaches to steady with the testing number increases.
