    Phytochemical investigation of the stem and bark of Steganotaenia araliacea led to the isolation of two flavonoids. The structures of these compounds were identified as apigenin 4'-glucoside 1 and sophoraflavone B 2 using ...
  • Kumar, R; Anandjiwala, RD (Wiley, 2012-05)
    Biocomposites were successfully prepared by the reinforcement of soy protein isolate (SPI) with different weight fractions of woven flax fabric. The flax-fabric-reinforced SPI-based composites were then arylated with ...
  • Kumar, R; Anandjiwala, R (2011-05)
    Natural fibers are used as reinforcement material for number of thermoplastic/thermoset polymers. The interest in using polylactic acid (PLA) as thermoplastic matrix to produce composites completely from 100% renewable ...
  • Kumar, R; Anandjiwala, R (2009-09)
    Water insoluble poly(furfuryl alcohol) (PFA) is an unexplored thermosetting resin which is synthesized from water-soluble furfuryl alcohol (FA). Commercially available FA has very low viscosity (6.9-7.0 cts at 25°C) and ...
  • Focke, WW; Muiambo, H; Mhike, W; Kruger, HJ; Ofosu, O (Elsevier, 2014-02)
    The utility of expandable graphite as a flame retardant for PVC, plasticized with 60 phr of a phosphate ester, was investigated. Cone calorimeter results, at a radiant flux of 35 kW m 2, revealed that adding only 5 wt.% ...
