Abstract [en]

Pineapple leaf microfibers were firstly prepared using steam explosion, and all-cellulose composites were subsequently prepared using a surface selective dissolution process with the solvent of lithium chloride and N,N-dimethylacetamide (LiCl/DMAc). Mechanical properties and surface morphology of all-cellulose composites with immersion times of pineapple leaf microfibers in the solvent of LiCl/DMAc were investigated using tensile testing and scanning electron microscopy, respectively. The tensile strength of the all-cellulose composites with 120 min-immersion time was approximately 28 times higher than that of the pineapple leaf microfiber mats. These biocomposites made from pineapple leaf microfibers could be one of the potential alternatives to replace glass fiber reinforced composites.
