Summary

In this study, the effect of sugar palm nanocrystalline cellulose (SPNCC) loading (0.00–0.10 wt %) on the electrical resistance, resistivity, and conductivity of SPS/SPNCC (SPS – sugar palm starch) nanocomposite films were evaluated. The experiments were conducted using the four-probe method and Ohm’s law, resistivity and conductivity equations were utilized to obtain the electrical properties. The results revealed that the resistivity values of SPS/SPNCC films were found to be in the range of 3.1 · 102 to 1.5 · 104 (Ω · cm).
