Tri(ethylene glycol) is shown to successfully plasticize bloodmeal-based thermoplastics, remaining in the plastic after conditioning, decreasing the glass transition temperature and increasing the strain at break and toughness. Although plasticized, H-bonding still dominates protein/protein interactions.
