Objectives of the Study
This study aims to prepare and characterize paper using superhydrophobic calcium carbonate
nanoparticles derived from waste egg shells. Specifically it aims to:
•
prepare CaCO3 powder from waste eggshell.
•
functionalize the prepared CaCO3 powder with stearic acid.
•
characterize the functionalized
and EDX.
•
powder
using X-Ray Diffraction, SEM, FTIR,
measure the contact angle of the powder using the Image J application.
•
coat the functionalized CaCO3 and optimize the loading ratio of the Polystyrene and the
functionalized calcium carbonate unto paper.
•
characterize the paper using X-Ray Diffraction, SEM, FTIR, and EDX.
•
measure the contact angle of the paper using Image J application.
