Composites of Poly(lactic Acid) with Rice Straw Fibers Modified by Poly(butyl Acrylate)

Abstract:

Article Preview

The modified rice straw fibers (MRSF) were prepared by suspension polymerization technique of butyl acrylate (BA) monomer and rice straw fibers (RSF) in water solution. FTIR test indicated that PBA was coated and absorbed on RSF.The biodegradable composites were prepared with the MRSF and poly(lactic acid) (PLA) by HAAKE rheometer. Mechanical properties showed that the tensile strength of PLA/MRSF composites were (W (%) =7.98%) increased by 6 MPa compared with blank sample. The possible reason was that the good interfacial adhesion between PLA and MRSF, which was demonstrated by SEM.
