  • Jacob John, Maya; Bellmann, C; Anandjiwala, RD (Elsevier, 2010-10)
    This paper presents an experimental study on the use of zein as a coupling agent in natural fibre composites. Kenaf nonwovens were treated with zein coupling agent, which is a protein extracted from corn. The surface ...
  • Jacob John, Maya; Anandjiwala, RD; Thomas, S (Old City Publishing, 2009-04)
    Natural Rubber (NR) is a naturally occurring elastomeric polymer of isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene). It can be extracted from latex of only one kind of tree, the Hevea braziliensis. Hevea rubber is produced in many ...
  • John, MJ; Anandjiwala, R; Oksman, K; Mathew, AP (Wiley, 2012-04)
    Bio-based continuous fibers were processed from polylactic acid (PLA) and cellulose nanowhiskers (CNWs) by melt spinning. Melt compounding of master batches of PLA with 10 wt % CNWs and pure PLA was carried out using a ...
  • John, MJ; Thomas, S (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-08)
    The scarcity of natural polymers during the world war years led to the development of synthetic polymers like nylon, acrylic, neoprene, styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and polyethylene. The increasing popularity of synthetic ...
  • Joseph, S; Jacob John, Maya; Pothen, LA (Springer, 2010)
    Biopolymers from renewable resources have attracted much attention in recent years. Increasing environmental consciousness and demands of legislative authorities have given significant opportunities for improved materials ...
  • Jacob John, Maya; Anandjiwala, RD (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, 2008)
    A critical review of the literature on the various aspects of natural fibers and biocomposites with a particular reference to chemical modifications is presented in this paper. A notable disadvantage of natural fibers is ...
  • Mngomezulu, ME; John, MJ; Jacobs, V; Luyt, AS (Elsevier, 2013-10)
    The subject on flammability properties of natural fibre-reinforced biopolymer composites has not been broadly researched. This is not only evidenced by the minimal use of biopolymer composites and/or blends in different ...
  • John, MJ (World Scientific Publishing, 2014-06)
    This chapter presents an overview on the compounding and processing techniques of natural rubber compounds. The introductory portion deals with different types of rubbers and principles of rubber compounding. The primary ...
  • John, MJ; Jacob John, Maya; Jose, S; Varughese, KT; Thomas, S (John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2009)
    This study explores the dynamic mechanical behavior of woven sisal fabric reinforced natural rubber composites. The influence of chemical modification on the viscoelastic properties has also been determined. Moreover, the ...
