Mechanical Extraction and Physical Characterization of Pandanus Odorifer Lignocellulosic Fibre
M. D. Teli | A. C. Jadhav
Abstract: Lignocellulosic fibres have been investigated to understand its influence on properties of textile fibres. Pandanus Odorifer (PO) is a leaf fibre which was mechanically extracted from the leaves of the plant using water retting extraction method. The chemical composition of the extracted fibres was determined using TAPPI method. The composition mainly consisted of cellulose 441 %, hemicelluloses 301 %, lignin211 %, ash content 2.50.5 %, and extractives around 2.50.5 %, Structural analysis was carried out by FTIR, SEM, TGA, X-ray diffraction. Tensile and moisture content properties were also studied.
