Bio-plastic Synthesis from Plant Substances

Authors(4) :-Deshmukh Sulakshana, Dr. Oza Rajeshwari, Shelke Vishal, Shingote Mayur

Bio-plastic from acetylated starch of phaseolus vulgaris beans, Hylocereous undatus fruit peels and Euphorbia tirucalli latex offers a new combination of starting material, easy and inexpensive method, effective results for crucial tests. The starch, latex and fruit peel paste were mixed in certain proportion and heated at 1200C. The mixture was spread onto petri dish and dried in oven at 600C. The solvent uptake capability of bioplastic was checked with solvents like NaOH, dilute HCl, Ethanol, Acetone and water. The solvent uptake test was carried out to determine the absorption capability of bioplastic for selected solvents. The results shows that the plastic dipped in dilute HCl and NaOH (2N) get swollen. Less absorption is observed in ethanol, distilled water and acetone. Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) is a bio-degradable polymer belonging to the polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA). The high plasticity generating sources when combined under appropriate conditions help in the synthesis of biodegradable polymer i.e. PHB.[1]
