Abstract/Summary It has been seen that starch bio-nanocomposite systems are complex systems that are tuneable via type of nanofillers, design of nanofiller geometry (size, shape), design of nanofiller surface chemistry, starch type and modification, starch–plasticiser– nanofiller interactions, and processing conditions. These parameters have major effects on structure, processibility, final mechanical, thermal, barrier and other properties, and biodegradation of starch nanocomposites. If these interactions are well controlled, and the desired structure and hence final performances are achieved, starch bionanocomposites offer great promise to extend the application of starch-based polymers into wider more demanding applications.
