Paper Abstract

The structure of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) samples with different thermal history was investigated with the aim of explaining the differences in the kinetic of enzymatic degradation. The results confirmed that the increase of the crystallinity is not the only structural parameter enhancing the PHB resistance to the enzymatic degradation, but the crystal dimensions can strongly affect the rate of enzymatic degradation.
