A biobased monofunctional compatibilizer (called Epicard) is first synthesized by the reaction of cardanol with epichlorohydrin as confirmed by Fourier transform infrared and 1H NMR. Subsequently, biosourced polymers, polylactide (PLA) and starch, are melt-blended by a twin-screw extruder with Epicard. Confirmed by the measurements of contact angle and 1H nuclear magnetic resonance of the extracted starches from PLA/starch/Epicard blends, the Epicard only possesses a monoepoxy group to mainly react with starch and then increased the hydrophobicity of the starches during the melt-blending process. As a result, an obvious improvement to the interfacial adhesion between starch and PLA is observed by the scanning electron microscopy. Furthermore, the tensile properties of PLA/starch blends are effectively improved with the addition of Epicard. This study suggests a simple but effective material technique by utilizing a novel plant oil modifier to increase interfacial adhesion in fabricating fully biobased PLA/starch blends with superior tensile properties.

Poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) membranes have been widely applied to treat wastewater, however, the removal of toxic aromatic phenolic compounds remains a technical challenge due to the serious adsorption fouling and difficult degradation. Herein, we aimed to design a superhydrophilic PVDF membrane decorated with Au nanoparticles, which enhanced the rapid degradation of p-nitrophenol (4-NP). The superhydrophilic PVDF membrane with a micro/nano structured surface was decorated with Au nanoparticles via poly(dopamine) (PDA) as a spacer. The influences of membrane affinity (e.g. Hydrophilic Membrane (HM), micro/nano structured superhydrophilic membrane (MSiM), and micro/ nano structured superhydrophobic membrane (MSoM)) on PDA deposition and the subsequent Au decoration were comprehensively investigated. The synthesized Au nanoparticles were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and UV-vis absorption spectra. The morphology and composition was evaluated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Static catalytic experiments demonstrated that MSiM degraded over 90% of 4-NP in 5 minutes with a kinetic reaction rate constant of 47.84 10 2 min 1 and high stability over 6 cycles. A membrane catalytic reactor (MCR) was designed to realize the continuous catalytic degradation of 4-NP with a kinetic reaction rate constant of 7 10 2 min 1.
