Biodegradable plastic for medical use

Abstract

A new method for preparation of starch/cellulose composite is reported. The composite was obtained by mixing both mercerized cellulose and corn starch. Different techniques have been utilized for characterization of Starch/cellulose composite such as FT-IR, X-ray diffractometer and differential scan colorimetric.
