Abstract


Polymers and polymeric composites have steadily reflected their importance in our daily life. Blending poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) with a potentially useful natural biopolymers such as carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) seems to be an interesting way of preparing a polymeric blends. The aim of the work is to blend PVA/CMC of compositions (100/0, 80/20, 60/40, 50/50, 40/60, 20/80, and 0/100 wt/wt%) were prepared to be used as bioequivalent materials. The blend have been Characterised by Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy and swelling ratio. The obtained results showed variations in the FTIR spectra indicating the miscibility of the blend systems. More over the results showes improved swelling properties than the poly vinyl alcohol homopolymer.
