Abstract

Information on the basic properties of Melocanna baccifera (Roxb.) Kurz (Muli bamboo), particularly for pulp and papermaking, is very limited. Since many bamboo species remain unutilized, research is needed to determine their properties so that appropriate technologies could be developed to exploit them. One of such properties which affect the suitability of the species as a pulping material is the proximate chemical composition, which was investigated in a study on Melocanna baccifera (Muli bamboo), the most common bamboo from North Eastern India. Fifty mature culms of M. baccifera were obtained from Forest of Silchar, Cachar District of Assam, India. Samples taken from the top, middle and basal portions were thoroughly mixed and used in the study. Determination of proximate chemical analysis was based on TAPPI methods.
