Abstract: Synthesis of microcrystalline cellulose from jute sticks has been studied and reported in this work. The successful removal of lignin and hemicellulose has been confirmed through Fourier Transform Infra-red spectroscopic technique, whereas WAXD technique has been used to measure the crystal size and crystallinity index. Scanning electron microscopic images depict the porous structure and agglomerate fibrous shape with hierarchical assembly of the microcrystalline cellulose produced. Higher concentration of sodium chlorite produces minimum particle size and the effective thermal degradation occurs at 340 °C. It shows negative zeta potential value, indicating the possible agglomerating tendency of the particles in water medium.
