Abstract Four biobased thermosets were used as matrices for manufacturing natural fiber-reinforced biocomposites with high performance and biobased contents. The thermosets included acrylated epoxidized soybean oil (AESO), AESO with methacrylated isosorbide (MI) as a comonomer (MI-AESO), methacrylated AESO with MI (MI-MAESO), and MI resins. Bamboo fibers (BFs) and hemp fibers (HFs) were chosen as representatives for natural fibers in the biocomposites. The synergistic effects of fiber type and r...

The progress in the development of composites with natural fibers for various applications in different sectors witnesses remarkable success worldwide in the last decade. Among the various natural fibers existing worldwide, pineapple leaf fibers (PALFs) possess remarkable mechanical properties because of the maximum content of cellulose (∼80%) among all natural fibers. In spite of having few limitations such as hydrophilicity, its advantages such as low cost, low weight, and biodegradability ove...

Abstract Textile-reinforced polymer composites (TRPCs) are attracting more and more interest for use as structural elements in an array of fields such as construction, infrastructure, energy generation, geotextile, transportation, and aerospace applications. Filler of those TRPCs were manufactured based on weaving, knitting, and braiding processes as well as nonwoven production technologies. The properties (stiffness, flexibility, impact resistance, etc.), rate of production, and production cost...

Jute fiber (woven fabric, 1 × 1 plain weave) reinforced polypropylene matrix composites were prepared by compression molding with various fiber loading such as 30%, 40%, 46%, 50%, 55% by weight. The mechanical properties such as tensile strength (TS), bending strength (BS), tensile modulus (TM), bending modulus (BM) and impact strength (IS) of the composite were assessed and analyzed. The highest value of TS, BS, TM, BM and IS were 68.1 MPa, 94.1 MPa, 2936 MPa, 4831 MPa and 14.5 kJ/m2 respective...

Jute fabric samples were treated, with different formulations, using various proportions of bitumen emulsion and polyester (PE) resin in combined solutions. Styrene monomer was used as solvent, methyl ethyl ketone peroxide as cross-linking agent and cobalt naphtha as curing agent. The fabric specimens were immersed in the solution for 10–15 min, then pressed by a roller and dried at room temperature for 24 h. According to the percentage of bitumen emulsion and PE resin, the jute samples were obt...

Abstract Microplastics are increasingly detected in the environment and the consequences on water resources and ecosystems are not clear to date. The present study provides a cost-effective and straightforward method to determine the mass concentrations of polymer types using thermal analysis. Characteristic endothermic phase transition temperatures were determined for seven plastic polymer types using TGA-DSC. Based on that, extracts from wastewater samples were analyzed. Results showed that am...

Greater concern for environmental safety and fuel economy has increased interest in the use of renewable resources for development of new materials. Wood–plastic composites, made of recycled plastic and wood wastes, are very attractive in this respect, making this one of the most dynamic areas of new developments in the plastics industry in the past decade. This paper presents the preparation and characterization of polypropylene-sawdust composites by compression molding using maleated polypropy...

Abstract The pyrolytic characteristics of cellulose, cellobiose and glucose were examined by TG-FTIR combined with Py-GC–MS, in order to gain the effect of β -O-4 glycosidic bond on the pyrolysis process. In TG-FTIR analysis, two mass loss peaks were observed for cellobiose and glucose, indicating dehydration in low temperature stage and consequently intensive cracking of glycosidic bond and fragments for cellobiose. The samples were tested in Py-GC–MS at the temperature of 300, 500 and 900 °C a...
