The mechanical and optical properties of cellulose-based composite films are investigated.It is shown that the use of toluene diisocyanate as a coupling agent and Avicel fibers as reinforcing elements give films with the highest mechanical characteristics. Using differential scanning calorimetry, it is also found that the glass transition temperature T g of all the materials studied is below the room temperature and that the T g increased with cross-linking and introduction of Avicel.
