Investigation of Physical, Chemical, and Structural Characterization of Areca Catechu.L Fiber

Dr. S. Yamuna Devi


Abstract: Researchers and scientists are looking forward to the new fiber sources for sustainable processing. The ultimate goal is to produce an organic fibrous material that can be utilized in the textile industry and to manufacture eco-friendly products. In this circumstance here emerges a fiber from Areca catechu. L (sheath) which has been attracted worldwide as a threat to biodiversity. Hence this paper highlights the physical, chemical and structural characterization of the fiber extracted from Areca catechu. L sheath fiber. The fiber was examined for the physical properties such as fiber length, diameter, elongation, moisture absorbency, and fineness as well as mechanical properties by analyzing its tensile strength test. The structural and functional characterization of the fiber is examined using the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and IR spectroscopy (FTIR). The thermal behavior of the fiber is analyzed using the Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC).


Keywords: Natural fiber, fiber properties, SEM analysis, FTIR analysis, DSC
