Nanocellulose Crystals from Coir Fibre for Template Application


Undried coir cellulose was prepared by chlorite bleaching method and hydrolyzed by 50% sulphuric acid to obtain highly crystalline nanocellulose. The proximate analysis of the coir fibre such as; moisture, ash, crude fibre, protein and its mineral composition were investigated using the AOAC standard protocol. The effect of hydrolysis on coir cellulose… (More)
