Fourier Transform Mid-Infrared Spectromiscroscopy Analysis for Canola (Brassica napus L.) and Flax (Linum Usitatissimum) stems

Authors: Vahora, Tasneem; Morrison, Jason
Description: The primary objective of this research is to compare the cellulosic fibres present in canola and linseed flax stems to determine the suitability for the production of natural fibres. This is an opportunity to add value to these crops as the stems are frequently unharvested. The analysis is performed in the mid-infrared (mid-IR) region (4000cm-1
