To tailor the interaction across composite interfaces especially for the development of green composites, i.e. composites made completely from renewable materials, information about the fibre surfaces is required. We review the current state of the art of methods to determine the surface tension of natural fibres and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of techniques used. Although numerous techniques have been employed to characterise surface tension of natural fibres, it seems that… Expand
