The results of FT-IR showed that there was no distinc-tive

change in absorption peak positions of the CNC compared with


those of the mulberry fiber, which indicates that the acid
hydrol-ysis of mulberry fiber did not affect the chemical
structure of the cellulose fragments (Haafiz, Eichhorn, Hassana,
& Jawaid, 2013). However, the intensity of peaks of the
mulberry CNC was higher than those of native fiber, which
indicates that the degree of crys-tallinity of CNC was higher
than that of cellulose fiber (Noor, Ishak, & Ibrahim, 2003). This
was further conformed by the XRD analysis.
The FT-IR spectrum of CNC was similar to that of CMF in all
wave numbers, which indicated that the main cellulose
structure has been maintained after acid hydrolysis. In the case
of CNC, the peak intensity was higher than that of CMF, which
indicated that the degree of crystallinity of the cellulose of CNC
was higher than that of CMF

Spektrum FTIR dari serat nanokristal selulosa eceng gondok


memiliki profil yang hamper sama di setiap wavenumber
dengan serat eceng gondok yang digester dan bleaching. Ini
mengindikasikan bahwa adanya pengaruh hidrolisis asam yang
dapat memunculkan struktur kristal selulosa tipe I.
Bagaimanapun, Dalam kasus ini serat nanokristal selulosa
eceng gondok puncak intensitasnya lebih tinggi dari serat
eceng gondok yang murni dan digester seperti yang dilaporkan
oleh (Noor, Ishak, & Ibrahim, 2003). This was further conformed
by the XRD analysis.
