It is the main component (40 – 50% or more) of lignocellulose fibers, the other two being hemicellulose (20 – 30%) and lignin (10 – 30%). The purest form of cellulose sources is cotton linters (85 – 95%). Others are jute, kenaf, and chanvre (60 – 75%), as well as woods (40 – 50%) (URL2). Cellulose, starch, and their constituents are the two most important raw materials for the preparation of films (Engelhardt, 1995). , 1996). 2 STARCH AND STARCH DERIVATIVES Starch is a highly hydrophilic material that contains anhydroglucose units linked by a-D-1,4-glycosidic bonds.
