Abstract
The strength of the interphase between the reinforcements and the matrix has a major role in the mechanical properties of natural ¿ber reinforced polyole¿n composites. The creation of strong interphases is hindered by the hydrophobic and hydrophilic natures of the matrix and the reinforcements, respectively. Adding coupling agents has been a common strategy to solve this problem. Nonetheless, a correct dosage of such coupling agents is important to, on the one hand guarantee strong interphases...
