The accurate material modelling of poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) is vital in conducting finite element analysis of polymeric bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) to investigate their mechanical performance and seek improved scaffold designs. To date, a large variety of material models have been utilised, ranging from simple elasto-plastic models to high fidelity parallel network models. However, no clear consensus has been reached on the appropriateness of these different models and whether simple, less computationally expensive models can serve as acceptable approximations.

Polymorphic Phase Formation of Liquid Crystals Distributed in Semicrystalline Polymers: An Indicator of Interlamellar and Interspherulitic Segregation.

J Phys Chem Lett 2021 May 3:4378-4384. Epub 2021 May 3.

State Key Laboratory of Chemical Engineering, College of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Zhejiang University, 38 Zheda Road, Hangzhou 310027, China.

Amorphous and melted components can segregate into the interlamellar or interspherulitic regions of polymer crystals in their blends/mixtures; this phase behavior strongly influences the physical properties and functions of materials. However, it is experimentally difficult to evaluate the spatial distributions of the other components in polymer crystals. Herein, we use a small-molecule liquid crystal (LC) as a probe and find that it forms different solid phases when mixed with the semicrystalline polymer poly(l-lactic acid) (PLLA). Read More

Effect of Molar Mass on Critical Specific Work of Flow for Shear-Induced Crystal Nucleation in Poly (l-Lactic Acid).

Polymers (Basel) 2021 Apr 13;13(8). Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Interdisciplinary Center for Transfer-oriented Research in Natural Sciences, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, 06099 Halle/Saale, Germany.

The concept of specific work of flow has been applied for the analysis of critical shearing conditions for the formation of crystal nuclei in poly (l-lactic acid) (PLLA). Systematic variation in both time and rate of shearing the melt in a parallel-plate rheometer revealed that these parameters are interconvertible regarding the shear-induced formation of crystal nuclei; that is, low shear rate can be compensated for by increasing the shear time and vice versa. This result supports the view that critical shearing conditions can be expressed by a single quantity, providing additional options for tailoring polymer processing routes when enhanced nuclei formation is desired/unwanted.
