About this book

This book highlights the various types of polymer and nanocomposites that can be derived from biorenewable resources. It covers various aspects of biobased polymers and nanocomposites, including preparation, processing, properties, and performance, and the latest advances in these materials. It also includes recent findings from leading researchers in academia and industry, government, and private research laboratories around the globe, providing the latest information on biobased polymers and nanocomposites. Offering an overview of the entire production process, it guides readers through all stages, from the raw source materials, processing and property characterization to application performance. This book is suitable for professionals and researchers seeking in-depth practical information as well as the fundamental science behind this. It also serves as a point of reference for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral researchers working in the area of polymer and composites with a special emphasis on biobased materials.

About the authors

Dr. Mohammad Jawaid is currently working as Fellow Researcher (Associate Professor) at Biocomposite Technology Laboratory, INTROP, Universiti Putra Malaysia(UPM), Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia, and also Visiting Professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering, College of Engineering, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia since June 2013. I am also Adjunct Research Advisor, Nan Yang Academy of Sciences (NAS), Singapore and Visiting Scientist to TEMAG Laboratory, Faculty of Textile Technologies and Design at Istanbul Technical University, Turkey. I have more than 14 years of experience in teaching, research and industries. My area of research interests includes hybrid reinforced/filled polymer composites, advance materials: graphene/nanoclay/fire-retardant, lignocellulosic reinforced/filled polymer composites, modification and treatment of lignocellulosic fibres and solid wood, Biopolymers and biopolymers for packaging applications, nanocomposites and nanocellulose fibres, polymer blends.

Muhammed Lamin Sanyang is currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Laboratory of Biocomposite Technology at the Institute of Tropical Forestry and Forest Products (INTROP), Universiti Putra Malaysia. In 2011, he was awarded the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) masters scholarship to pursue his Master’s Degree (MSc) in Environmental Engineering at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). Upon completing his MSc programme in 2013, he was again awarded the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia to undertake a PhD degree in the field of Green Engineering at the Institute of Advance Technology (ITMA), UPM.
