Abstract

"The research described in this thesis focused on the development, fabrication and characterization of soy based plastics, coatings, and foams...Present research involved conversion of soybean oil into an epoxidized soybean oil, which was then transesterified to yield epoxidized allyl ester of soybean oil or epoxidized allyl soyate (EAS). EAS was used for obtaining three types of plastics. It was combined with soy protein isolates (SPI) to develop functional plastics. The plastics were characterized for mechanical and thermal properties. The properties were compared with SPI - glycerol based plastics. The EAS-SPI plastics were found to be vastly superior to SPI-glycerol plastics in terms of mechanical and thermal properties as well as in the environmental stability"--Abstract, leaf iii.
