Controlling the Molecular Interactions to Improve the Diffusion Barrier of Biosourced Polymers to Organic Solutes
The presented original work examines how sorption and diffusion can be combined at molecular scale in nanocomposite materials to improve the resistance to diffusion of biosourced or biodegradable polymers. The concept is applied to apolar penetrants and discussed on polycaprolactone (PCL) containing organomodified montmorillionites acting as nanoadsorbents.
