Thermal properties of PHB and PHB/PEG blends were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and melt index (MI) test. DSC thermograms indicate that two components of blend are miscible. From the DSC thermogram, we can also conclude that the melting point of PHB descends with the increased content of PEG, this can improve PHB processing properties. From MI data, we may draw the same conclusion.
