The formation and features of lamellar morphology are influenced by many factors, such as the composition [23] and rheological properties of the blends [24], processing conditions [25, 26], interfacial tension [27], and mixing methods [24], An appropriate compatibilizer, viscosity ratio between the dispersed phase and the matrix phase, and shear stress and a rapid cooling rate to room temperature are favorable for the development of lamellar structures.
