This data set contains structural information regarding diffraction and spectroscopy of cellulosic Sunn Hemp fiber. First, the XRD diffraction data will shed light on the crystallinity and crystallite size of cellulose. You can interpret the diffraction data by using Segal's peak height method or deconvoluted technique and Scherer's formula to find out cellulose crystallinity and crystallite size respectively. The diffraction data were gathered with certain conditions and specific instrumental parameters. The relative intensity were taken at the angle that scan from 5˚ to 50˚ with a 3˚/min scanning rate and step size of 0.01˚ The spectroscopic data is obtained using the FTIR tool to check the functional groups and bonding. You can interpret the result by checking on the transmission peaks. Cellulose is pure polar in nature and hence hydrophilic. If you are trying to reduce the hydrophilicity, then you will find some peak loss due to the bond-breaking removal of polar molecules. From transmission peak, you also can get the idea of the percentage of transmission with treatment. The data are examined over 8 scans utilizing a nominal resolution of 4 cm-1 at the near-infrared region of wave number 4000 to 400 cm-1. From the electrical data set, you can evaluate the dielectric parameters, impedance, conductivity, and modulus. The current data was derived from an LCR meter in the frequency range of 100 Hz to 100 kHz at ambient temperature. This data will enable us to hold the information of the dielectric stability of composites that are made from naturally derived fibers. To interpret the dielectric and other electrical mentioned parameters, you will be needing a couple of formula which define dielectric constant, dielectric loss, ac conductivity, modulus etc.
