Abstract:

In this paper, the Rubiaceae Chinese Fevervine stem as raw material was used, with pool dipping, sodium hydroxide scouring and acid dipping as degumming methods, to produce Chinese Fevervine fibre (CF fibre). The components and structure of the fibre were tested and indicated with the relative component test method, infrared spectroscopy and a scanning electron microscope. The CF fibre produced possesses good spinnability: cellulose content 82.82%, specific gravity 1.323 g/cm3, length 41 mm, diameter 40.29 μm, linear density 2.93 tex, single fibre strength 55.4 cN, tenacity 18.9 cN/dtex, and elongation at break 2.87%. The results show that CF fibre is natural cellulose fibre, whose components is similar to those of flax.
