    Abstract: Nano-cellulose was extracted from Okra fiber by various chemical treatment such as alkali treatment, bleaching and then by acid hydrolysis. The final products were characterized by means of Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). FTIR results showed that the hemicelluloses and lignin were removed from the extracted nano... Show More
