Abstract

The necessity of bioplastic is very important in reducing plastic pollution. Researchers are interested in making starch-based bioplastic. However, the properties of starch are very low in nature. So, the improvement on properties of starch-based bioplastic is very essential. In this study, films were made using the sol-gel method—starch with dialdehyde starch solution and reinforced with graphene oxide by various weight ratios. The film was immersed in deionized water for 6 h to analyze the solubility. From this test, SRGO0.75 film had a solubility of 21.73%. One of the mechanical properties of the tensile test was recorded. The tensile strength and elongation of bioplastic is 4.31 MPa, 11.25% obtained for SRGO0.75 film. From the above results, X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy showed that the SRGO0.75 film had the best properties of bioplastic.
