Abstract The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of alkali treatment on the internal microstructure and tensile properties of abaca fibers. The abaca fibers were immersed in aqueous solutions of NaOH (5, 10, or 15 wt%) for 30 min, rinsed and dried. The fibers were subsequently characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), and tensile strength tests. The lumen is a hollow region in each elementary fiber… CONTINUE READING
