The simultaneous improvement of the melting temperature (T(m) = 224 °C) and the decomposition temperature (T(10) = 359 °C) of poly(lactide)s was achieved by the stereocomplex formation of poly(l-lactide) and poly(d-lactide) with bio-based aromatic groups at both initiating and terminating chain ends.
