ABSTRACT

To investigate the biodegradation of the cellulose powder(CP) derived from Styela clava tunics(SCT), some physico-chemical properties and biodegradability of SCT-CP were measured after the incubation for 45 days. The particles size of SCT-CP prepared with washing, bleaching, drying, and grinding processes was 150-400 μm although most of particles (70%) was more than 400 μm. The cellulose structures of SCT-CP detected using the X-ray diffraction and DSC analysis was very similar with that of wood pulp powder(WP-CP). The glass transition temperature was not detected in both samples. Furthermore, more than 90% of the SCT-CP was degraded, whereas only over 70% of the WP-CP was degraded after the incubation for 45 days. Therefore, these results suggest the possibility that SCT-CP is particularly applicable to prepare medical fiber and film for disease treatment.
