Abstract

This work explored commercially available Boltorn™ dendritic hydroxylated aliphatic esters to provide a new material platform for development of high oxygen barrier biodegradable films and coatings. Improved mechanical behavior was achieved via covalent linking of dendritic molecules using 1,6-hexamethylene diisocyanate. This report encompasses the information on structure, thermal, mechanical, oxygen barrier, and biodegradation behavior of pure and network systems.
