A research paper focuses on investigations of the improvements on chemical and thermal, and
mechanical properties of polypropylene (PP) by adding cellulose microcrystalline fillers (CMC).
The CMC powder was used as reinforcement in pure PP with various weight percentages 5, 10
and 20 % respectively. The melt mixing process was used to prepare (PP/ CMC) composites. The
structural changes of PP/CMC composites were investigated by Fourier transform infrared
(FTIR) spectra. The results of the Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) exhibited that the higher
addition of 20% CMC into the pure PP slightly improved both the residue yields and thermal
stability. The tensile strength of 20% CMC into pure PP was slightly increased and elongation
reduced, compared with pure PP.
