Impact of Cellulosic Material Composition on the Physico-mechanical Properties of Polypropylene Biocomposites

Authors: Soleimani, M., J. Fung, L. Tabil, I. Oguocha, V. Meda, and S. Panigrahi
Description: Application of cellulosic fibers in composites has increased in recent years due to their biodegradability, low cost, low abrasion, low density, and sustainable availability. In this study, the fabrication of polypropylene biocomposites using the by-product of acid hydrolysis of oat hull biomass in its original form and alkaline treated form was investigated. For biocomposite fabrication, the acid treated fiber (ATF) which was the by-product of acidic hydolysis was used as the biofiber in this work. It was delignified at temperatures of 30
