Abstract Starch is a polysaccharide widely present in nature and characterized by a wide range of applications. This often implies the necessity for various novel properties with respect to those of native starch, mainly achievable via chemical modification. During the last decades, products with new or enhanced properties were prepared from starch because of the adoption of “green” solvents (ionic liquids and supercritical CO2) and several new techniques (regioselective derivatization, atom tra...

Abstract Towards the utilization of different parts of date palm biomass waste, low-concentration acid-alkali treatment was used to isolate the contained cellulose and α-cellulose. The cellulose yields achieved from the rachis, leaflet, and fiber parts of the biomass were 74.70%, 71.50%, and 73.82%, respectively, while the corresponding α-cellulose yields were 78.63%, 75.64%, and 70.40%, respectively. The cellulose samples were bleached and characterized by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), Four...

Abstract Green composites, i.e. biodegradable polymers reinforced with natural fibers, are attracting interest as potential substitutes for conventional composites based on petroleum derived plastics. The role of the inherently complex morphology of natural fibers in their reinforcing mechanisms is not completely understood and this is the topic of the present study. The selected system was poly-(lactic acid) filled with 3 and 6 wt% of short hemp fibers. Such a low fiber amount was chosen to hel...

Abstract Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) were produced from cellulose extracted from apple pomace (AP). In the alkaline treatment step for cellulose extraction, three variables, the NaOH concentration (6–12%), extraction time (30–240 min), and temperature (30–90 °C) were optimized through response surface methodology (RSM) for highest yield, highest purity (α-cellulose), and whiteness index (WI). The optimum conditions were determined as 10.23% NaOH, 69.82 °C, and 161.54 min, where the cellulose y...

Abstract Designing environmentally friendly materials from natural resources represents a great challenge in the last decade. However, the lack of fundamental knowledge in the processing of the raw materials to fabricate the composites structure is still a major challenge for potential applications. Natural fibers extracted from plants are receiving more attention from researchers, scientists and academics due to their use in polymer composites and also their environmentally friendly nature and ...

The influence of elevated temperatures on mechanical behavior was studied for curaua, hemp, and sisal natural fibers. Tensile tests were performed on fibers heated at 100 °C, 150 °C, and 200 °C for 24 h, and reference samples were maintained without thermal treatment for comparisons. The cross sectional area of the fibers was measured using a scanning electron microscope (SEM), and the image analysis was performed using the open source software Fiji/ImageJ. These data allowed the computation of ...
