A poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) was processed by injection moulding to produce amorphous samples. The polymer degradation of the samples was characterized by the chemical changes (molecular weight), physical changes (colour transformation and crystallinity) as well as changes in mechanical performance (compression property and hardness).
