LDPE/Wheat Gluten Husk Biocomposites Applied to Benzophenone Absortion: Determination of Properties Using Computational Chemistry

The development of natural fiber reinforced biodegradable polymer composites promotes the use of environmentally friendly materials. The use of green materials provides alternative way to solve the problems associated with agriculture residues. Agricultural crop residues such as oil palm, pineapple leaf, banana, and sugar palm produced in billions of tons around the world. They can be obtained in abundance, low cost, and they are also renewable sources of biomass.
