Nanocomposite film prepared by depositing xylan on cellulose nanowhiskers matrix

Author affiliations

Abstract

Novel bionanocomposite films have been prepared by depositing xylan onto cellulose nanowhiskers through a pH adjustment. Analysis of strength properties, water vapour transmission, transparency, surface morphology and thermal decomposition showed the enhancement of film performance. This provides a new green route to the utilization of biomass for sustainable biomaterials production.
