The relationship between the nanostructure of Moso bamboo (Phyllostachys edulis (Carr.) H. De Lehaie) and the radial distance from the lacuna and the age of the culm was studied using X-ray scattering and electron microscopy. The size of cellulose crystallites and the crystallinity increased, and the mean microfibril angle decreased from about 40º in the inner part to about 10º in the outer part of the culm showing that bamboo is a functionally graded material at the nanoscale. The mean… CONTINUE READING
