Paper Abstract

Short flax fibres as the reinforcing material to PP/flax composite were mercerized and modified by silane compounds. Polymorphism transformation in the crystal structure of cellulose as an effect of chemical treatment of flax fibres was studied by means of wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS) method. It was found that after mercerization process only a part of cellulose I was transformed into cellulose II and silane treatment does not change the structure of the flax fibres. In the paper, based on WAXS measurement, a method of defining the amount of the cellulose I and the cellulose II was proposed.
