On top of that, this research will reveal the thermal behavior of the polymer derived from Tacca leontopetaloides starch with natural rubber and three different plasticizers which are glycerol, palm olein, and crude palm oil.
The roots of Tacca leontopetaloides were obtained from the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
The infrared (IR) spectra of Tacca leontopetaloides starch/natural rubber blends incorporated with glycerol, palm olein, and crude palm oil and without plasticizer were labelled as TPE1, TPE2, TPE3, and TPE4, respectively, in Figure 1.
The thermal behavior of Tacca leontopetaloides starch/natural rubber blends was investigated.
