Abstract: Polyurethane (PU)/starch biocomposites have been prepared with different weight fractions of starch (viz., from 0 to 40 wt %). The fabricated PU/starch composites were characterized by mechanical properties and thermal (DSC and TGA) behaviors. Microcrystalline parameters were calculated using X-ray profile. Water uptake and its effect on mechanical properties have been evaluated.

Abstract: Composites of silk fibre reinforced chain extended polyurethane (CEPU) was synthesized by the reaction of castor oil with different diisocyanates and glutaric acid as chain extender. The effect of incorporation of silk fibre into neat CEPU on the physico- mechanical properties and thermal behaviours (TGA and DMA) has been investigated. The incorporation of silk fibre into CEPUs resulted in an enhancement of tensile strength and Tg. The effects of biological fluids and salt solution on swelling behavior of CEPU biocomposites were reported. Key words: Castor oil, silk fibre, composites, polyurethane, DMA, TGA.
