英文摘要: Abstract(#br)In this study, blends of poly (caprolactone) (PCL) with different content of coir fibre (CF) (2, 2.5 and 5 wt%) were fabricated by solvent casting technique to obtain a biodegradable composite. The PCL/CF composites obtained have been characterised using the X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Electrodynamic fatigue testing machines. According to XRD patterns, the intensity of the peak in the pure PCL spectrum was found to decrease by the addition of coir fibre which then disappears when the CF content is 5 wt% is indicating that coir fibre inhibited the diffusion and deposition of PCL molecules. The FTIR absorption spectra for the PCL/CF blends showed that there was no new peak to represent the...
