Abstract [en]

Materials derived from natural resources are studied extensively now days and the preparation of novel nanocomposites based on biopolymers has drawn specific attention. It is expected that this type of nanocomposites will open new areas for medical, packaging and electronic applications. This paper deals with development of novel bio-nanocomposites where both the matrix and reinforcing phase consists of renewable materials. Processing technology of bio-nanocomposites and how the material combinations and orientation will affect the final composite mechanical and thermal properties will be discussed. The used reinforcements are nanowhiskers from wood and the matrix materials are cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB), and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA).
