The research aims to study the enhancement and improvement in the properties of PLA-based nanocomposites by adding different nanofillers at different weight percentages. Biodegradable polymers could be the most promising alternatives for replacing conventional petroleum-based polymers. Poly (lactic acid) can be derived from renewable resources and many researches had been carried out for the PLA-based nanocomposites. PLA-based nanocomposites is widely used in many applications such as biomedical applications. Nanocomposites used in biomedical applications requires specific requirements and limitations in pure PLA matrix such as lower thermal resistance and poor mechanical properties which can be enhanced by the incorporation of nanofillers such as nanoclays and fumed silica. Four different types of nanoclays were used in this study which were Nanomer® 1.28E, Nanomer® 1.30£, Nanomer® 1.31 PS and Nanomer® 1.34TCN .
