Cellulose, hemicellulose, biopolymers, reinforced films, biodegradable


This scientific research focused on extraction of the polymer from an appropriate source and preparation of films with mechanical integrity and desirable chemical properties. Reinforcement of said films with nano-fillers like Nano silica and clay were administered to reinforce their mechanical properties. Further development on these films would contribute to eliminating plastics and replacing them with better and sustainable materials. Cellulose may be a biopolymer found in plant cell walls which will be derived from biomass sources like sugarcane. It is one among the main constituents of plant cell walls alongside hemicellulose and lignin. “Cellulose consists of long unbranched fibers of glucose held together by hydrogen bonds”. It is widely utilized in paper, plastics, coatings and casings.
