Paper Title:
Fungal and Alkali Interfacial Modification of Hemp Fibre Reinforced Composites
  Abstract

The aim of the current work was to investigate using fungi to treat hemp fibre to create better bonding characteristics in natural fibre reinforced polypropylene composites. X-ray diffraction (XRD), lignin testing and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), were used to characterise the effect of treatment on hemp fibres. A combined alkali and fungal treated fibre composite produced the highest tensile strength of 48.3 MPa, an increase of 32% compared to composites with untreated fibre.
