The cellulose rich Roselle stem fiber found in abundance throughout the world was graft copolymerized by vinyl monomeric mixtures. The graft copolymer were characterized for the change in chemical structure by modern analytical techniques and evaluated for change in physical, chemical, thermal properties. These graft copolymers were then used as reinforcement in polymer matrix to form green composites. These composites had advanced physico-chemico-thermo-mechanical properties and viability that can have multi-disciplinary utilization for scientific, industrial applications that could serve as pioneer for the development of science and technology.
