IX - Nanocomposites materials reinforced with cellulose microfibrils from date palm

A. Bendahou, H. Kaddami, A. Dufresne

IX - 1 - Objective

The aim of our study was the valorization of the date palm tree (Phoenix L. dactylifera) by extraction of microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) from the rachis of the date palm tree. These MFC have been used as nano-reinforcements for composite materials. The extracted MFC were characterized by transmission electronic microscopy (TEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Natural rubber-based nanocomposite materials reinforced with this microfibrillated cellulose were prepared and characterized in terms of their morphological, mechanical and thermomechanical properties.
