Characterization of natural fiber extracted from Abelmoschus esculentus: an alternative potential for unconventional fibers


S Yamuna Devi, Dr. S Grace Annapoorani

Developing an eco-friendly composites in structural and automotive applications is more essential in natural materials. The aim of this work is to characteristic analysis of new natural unconventional fiber extracted from Abelmoschus esculentus stem (AESF). AES fibers show Cellulose content of 67 wt% with a range of Tensile strength from 2020 to 5820 Mpa and Elongation of 0.62%. The AES fibers has Crystallinity index of 62% which is compared with other unconventional fibers. Furthermore, the degradation of cellulose up to 375°C resist in AES fiber.
