Title
(EN) CRYSTAL NUCLEATING AGENTS FOR POLYHYDROXYALKANOATES
(FR) AGENTS DE NUCLÉATION DE CRISTAUX POUR POLYHYDROXYALCANOATES
Abstract
(EN) This invention relates to compositions and methods for increasing the crystallization rate and/or processing speed of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) polymers. PHA polymers are notorious for slow crystallization rates, reducing the practicality for using PHA for consumer products. Compounds that have similar crystal structures to PHA and have a melting point higher than that of the PHA, such as pentaerythritol, as well as compounds that undergo a crystal structure change at or below the melting point of the polymer, such as sulfur or selenium, act as good crystal nucleators for PHA.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des compositions et des procédés pour augmenter la vitesse de cristallisation et/ou la vitesse de traitement de polymères de polyhydroxyalcanoate (PHA). Les vitesses de cristallisation des polymères PHA sont notoirement lentes, ce qui réduit l'utilisation pratique des PHA pour des produits de consommation. Des composés qui ont des structures cristallines similaires à celle des PHA et ont un point de fusion supérieur à celui des PHA, tels que le pentaérythritol, ainsi que des composés qui subissent une modification de structure cristalline au niveau ou au-dessous du point de fusion du polymère, tels que le soufre ou le sélénium, agissent en tant que bons agents de nucléation de cristaux pour les PHA.
