Abstract

The advanced natural polymer reinforced polymer composite contributes to enhancing the development of bionanocomposites with regard to performance and sustainability. Different approaches have been carried out to use the natural biopolymer for the production of biodegradable composites. Chapter 2 gives the different processing techniques adopted for the preparation of starch, chitin and chitosan composites.
