Starch is a naturally occurring biopolymer with sustainable resource. This biopolymer has lower tensile strength. To overcome this, it is blended with Poly-vinyl Alcohol (PVA), which is a synthetic polymer but biodegradable and biologically safe. Nanocomposite of this blend has been prepared with 1%, 2% and 3% nanoclay loading. The thermal properties of this polymer have been studied. In this paper, the thermal characterization using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) of this blend and its nanocomposites has been done
