Abstract

Highlights ► Newly identified fabrics from the tree Sterculia urens were extracted. ► Cellulose matrix/ S. urens short fiber as a reinforcement films were prepared by a ‘green’ way. ► The green composite films are safe, stable and biodegradable. ► Thermal stability and mechanical properties of green composites were improved. ► These green composite films showed potential application in the packaging and biomaterials field.
