One Line Description
Serves as a “one-stop” reference resource for important research accomplishments in the area of polypropylene-based biocomposites and bionanocomposites.

This book will be a very valuable reference source for polymer and materials scientists as well as graduate and post-graduate students working on bionanocomposites and polypropylene-based composites and nanocomposites.

This book discusses new developments in an up-to-date, coherent and objective set of chapters by eminent researchers in the area of polypropylene-(PP) based biocomposites and bionanocomposites. It covers biomaterials such as cellulose, chitin, starch, soy protein, hemicelluloses, polylactic acid and polyhydroxyalkanoates.Other important topics covered include: hybrid biocomposites and bionanocomposites of PP • biodegradation study of PP-based biocomposites and bionanocomposites • PP-based bionanocomposites for packaging applications • PP-based carbon nanomaterials reinforced nanocomposites • degradation and flame retardancy of PP-based composites and nanocomposites • PP single-polymer composites • PP/plant-based fiber biocomposites and bionanocomposites • the development method, properties and application of PP/oil palm fiber composites • and the interfacial modification of PP-based biocomposites and bionanocomposites.
