Abstract: The efficiency of all microwave absorbing materials (MAM) /radar absorbing material (RAM) purely depends on their composition, particularly carbon and oxygen. Most of the biowaste being rich in cellulose contains carbon as the main component. The treatment of different biowaste like residues of agricultural products is a vital step before fabrication of biomaterial for different application. The present work describes the ultrasonic analysis of treatment of benzoyl chloride with aqueous cellulose. The variation of ultrasonic velocity and other acoustic parameters like compressibility and intermolecular free length with increasing concentration of benzoyl chloride suggests possible intermolecular interactions. The presences of such interactions have been well explained in terms of morphological changes in waste biomaterials like sugarcane bagasse. The presence of many reaction sites on the treated sugarcane bagasse increases its suitability for the synthesis of biomaterials. The SEM of treated sugarcane bagasse presents significant explanation for the absorption of incident microwave radiation on the prepared biomaterial.
