Sereni is present in abundance through-out the world. Its stem fiber has high tensile strength and low density that promotes it to serve as a backbone for graft-copolymerization. This cellulosic fiber was graft copolymerized by binary vinyl monomeric mixture using ceric ammonium nitrate-nitric acid as initiator system. The graft co-polymers were characterized by SEM, FTIR and XRD. The comparative evaluation of graft copolymers by x-ray diffraction studies revealed the change in morphology and nature of the fiber. The results obtained by XRD were supported by the physcio-chemico-thermal transition in the properties and behavior of the fiber. These modified graft copolymer could be used in numerous scientific and bio-medical applications.
