AB - Various methods for the determination of moisture uptake and water sorption behaviour of natural fibres are discussed; namely through simple weight gain measurement and dynamic vapour sorption (DVS), respectively. Simple weight gain measurement provides the equilibrium moisture content at a specified relative humidity. DVS, on the other hand, provides water sorption/desorption behaviour of natural fibres. Not only can the water sorption behaviour of natural fibres be determined, water sorption hysteresis can also be studied. A novel method of determining the accessible hydroxyl groups utilising heavy water using DVS apparatus was also discussed. This technique could potentially be applied to study the water sorption kinetics and mechanism of natural fibres. © 2011 Woodhead Publishing Limited. All rights reserved.
