A series of glycerol-plasticized starch composites reinforced by rice-husk cellulose nanocrystals was successfully fabricated through the solution casting technique. The rice husks must undergo alkali treatment, bleaching, and sulphuric acid hydrolysis before cellulose nanocrystals can be produced. The cellulose nanocrystal content used as filler was varied from 0 to 10 wt%. The thermal stability of the composite were analysed by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and derivative thermogravimetry… CONTINUE READING
