The poor toughness of polylactic acid (PLA) has led to imposing certain restrictions on its use in various applications. In similar cases, introducing nanostructures is known to be a practical strategy for tailoring the mechanical features of polymeric materials. Herein, the contributory impacts of the presence of pristine and surface-treated boron nitride nanosheets on the mechanical behavior of PLA were explored through molecular dynamics simulations. Comparatively, it was observed that embedding 3 wt(BNNS) improved Young's modulus and toughness of the polymer by 24.5
