High-performance environmentally-friendly biodegradable packaging materials as substitutes for conventional plastics become severe demand to nowadays economy and society. As an aliphatic aromatic copolyester Polybutylene Adipate Terephthalate (PBAT) is recognized as the preferred alternative to traditional plastics. However, the relatively high cost and weak properties obstacles the widespread adoption of PBAT. Modification pertaining to improve the properties, lower the cost, and include the functional additives of PBAT is a continuous effort to meet the needs of food accessibility, antibacterial properties, oxygen resistance, high mechanical strength, stable size, low moisture absorption, and various gas permeability for commercial competitiveness.
