Poaceae) is an important agricultural crop which is capable of producing valuable by-products such as sugar, biofuel, biofibers
, wax and bioplastic (Singh, Kumar, Tiwari, Rastogi, & Singh, 2013).
Saastry, "Fabrication of novel biofibers
by coating silk fibroin with chitosan impregnated with silver nanoparticles", J Mat Sci Mat Med.
Therefore, the protein biofibers
lost the original properties of the protein.
These new biofibers
join RheVision's existing offering of wood fiber, rice hull, and flax fiber-reinforced polyolefin.
Yang, an authority on biomaterials and biofibers
in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln explained that chicken feathers are made mainly of keratin, a tough protein also found in hair, hoofs, horns, and wool that can lend strength and durability to plastics.
Among their topics are spatial-energy parameters as a materialized analog of wave function, relaxation and structural properties of the anisotropic polymer composites, modifying cellulose by biocidal poly-electrolytes, physical and mechanical properties of highly filled polymer composites, the electrochemical synthesis of tungsten carbide nanopowders and carbon nanotubes, electrospun biodegradable and biocompatible natural biofibers
, and pharmacological premises for creating new anti-tumor preparations of the nitrosoalkylurea class.
, biodegradable polymers and biocomposites: An overview.
They provide high-value by-products like irrigation water, nitrogen for fertilizer, low-phosphorus manure, and biofibers
The actual task entailed developing coatings for the BioConcept Car's doors, fenders, bumper, hood, and hatch, which are made of biofibers
impregnated with a liquid bioplastic.
There is also significant interest in alternative substrates of biofibers
such as wheat board, straw board, rice board or soy-based materials.
After the introduction which summarizes the importance of biopolymer in the market, the book covers almost all the topics related to polysaccharides, biofibers
, bioplastics, biocomposites, natural rubber, gums, bacterial and blood compatible polymers, and applications of biopolymers in various fields.
