Abstract

In this chapter, the effects of two different preparation methods of cellulose nanowhiskers (CNW) on the tensile, thermal, morphological, and biodegradability properties of montmorillonite (MMT)-reinforced polylactic acid (PLA) were investigated. The CNWs were obtained from microcrystalline cellulose using chemical swelling (CNW-CS) and sulfuric acid hydrolysis (CNW-AH). Based on tensile properties, ...
