Orientation and Structure Development in Poly(lactide) under Uniaxial Deformation
Semicrystalline poly(l-lactide), or PLLA, is used in many biomedical applications, including self-expanding stents. A network model is applied to describe the deformation behaviour of semicrystalline poly(l-lactide) obtained at different drawing temperatures. Based on the present results, it is suggested that the deformation behaviour of PLLA appears to follow pseudo-affine model at the macroscopic level, but it does not follow it at the molecular level. The development of molecular orientation...[Show more]
