Abstract

Biocomposites with unique functionalities for tailored applications are promising products for a sustainable future. In this work, a process concept of forming functional composites by combining of high-density polyethylene, carbon black, and magnetic lignocellulosic particles (wood flour) was demonstrated. The impacts of process parameters on morphologies, crystalline phase, and magnetic intensity of wood flour were identified. Magnetic, antistatic and mechanical properties of biocomposites were also evaluated. Lignocellulosic particles were encapsulated with magnetic nanoparticles, and the resulting composites exhibited tunable magnetic and antistatic properties. A noticeable feature is that magnetic nanoparticles were uniformly distributed in the matrices as a result of anchorage to lignocellulosic particles. Magnetic lignocellulosic particles and polymer resin had good compatibility. The resulting composites provided another opportunity for shielding materials, which could reduce the radiation in the living environment. These findings could provide a tunable strategy of the tailored use of lignocellulose-based composites in functional applications. View Full-Text
