Hybridization of organic and inorganic material opens many opportunities by taking the advantages of both materials. Cellulose is one of the most abundant material on earth which is biocompatible, cheap, lightweight, and environment friendly. Cellulose nanofibers (CNF) have high mechanical strength because of high crystallinity. Graphene Oxide (GO) is one forms of carbon which is produced from graphite flake. CNF and GO composites (CNFGO) can offer advantages in terms of mechanical strength as well as electrical properties. CNF is extracted from hardwood pulp using mild TEMPO treatment and aqueous counter collision (ACC). GO is synthesized from graphite flakes following improved synthesize of graphene oxide. CNFGO suspension is prepared using a simple blending method. CNFGO fiber is fabricated by spinning CNFGO suspension in CaCl2 coagulation solution. The composite fiber is characterized using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD). Mechanical Properties of the composite fibers is also investigated.
