To understand how the morphology and structure of the blend composites are related to the final properties, this work reports a comparative study on the effect of graphite (G) and graphene oxide (GO) dispersions on the thermal, mechanical, rheological properties of biodegradable polylactide-poly(ecaprolactone) blend composites. A significant improvement in the elongation at break (43.8%), with well-balance of modulus and strength characteristics, is observed for the G-filled (0.25 wt %) blend composite. The GO-filled (0.05 wt %) ternary composite shows a strong (ç19°C) improvement in the thermal stability. The cover presents the freeze-fractured surface morphology of 0.05 wt % G-filled blend composite. (DOI: 10.1002/app.45373).
