Study on preparation and characterization of regenerated cellulose/TPU composite films


Journal Article

©, 2014, Journal of Functional Materials. All right reserved. The regenerated cellulose/TPU blend films were prepared by being dissolved in DMAC/LiCl solvent and coagulated in distilled water. The structure of TPU was characterized by 1H NMR. The structure of the blend films were characterized by FT-IR and XRD. The tensile property and light transmittance were tested by a universal stretcher and WGT-S transmissometer, respectively. The results indicated that the crystallinity of cellulose was destroyed to some extent by incorporation of TPU. The elongation at break of regenerated cellulose was improved by 65% at TPU 20wt%. The regenerated cellulose films maintained high light transmittance.
