AB - Mechanical properties of rod7like cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) offer great potential as bioderived reinforcement in (nano)composites. Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) is a useful industrial material and very compatible with CNC chemistry. High performance CNC/PVOH composite fibers were produced coaxial coagulation spinning, followed by hot7drawing. DSC and WAXS showed that CNCs increase the alignment and crystallinity of PVOH, as well as providing direct reinforcement, leading to enhanced fiber strength and stiffness. At 40 wt.% CNC loading, the strength and stiffness reached 880 MPa and 29.9 GPa, exceeding the properties of most other nanocellulose based composite fibers previously reported.
