The Tensile and Moisture Properties of Broussonetia Papyriferalvent (BP) Fibers
In this paper the components of Broussonetia Papyriferalvent (BP) white bast were tested and compared with some bast fibers such as hemp, flax, jute and and ramie, the cellulose content is as high as 63.76wt%. The bio-enzyme pre-trement and alkali-H2O2 one bath processing were employed to extract BP fibers. The effect of bio-enzyme pre-trement and alkali-H2O2 one bath processing on the morphological structure of cellulose was investigated with X-ray diffraction (XRD). The tensile and moisture properties of BP fibers were tested and discussed.
