Processing and characterization of natural polymers
2015 (English)In: Natural Polymers: Industry Techniques and Applications, Springer, 2015, 19-61 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This chapter covers recent techniques applied in processing and characterization of natural polymers. This includes techniques in processing natural polymers from their natural forms into modified forms for more varied application and functionality. It also looks at techniques for processing modified and unmodified natural polymers for various purposes such as film formation for transdermal patches, composite and blends production to form films with improved mechanical properties, magnetic decoration for production of tough membranes with magnetic properties. The characterization methods covered in this chapter include X-ray diffraction, microscopy, and Fourier transform infrared spectrometry. We look at recent reported processing and characterization techniques which are applicable to the major industries today for natural polymer-based materials.
