In one of projects of my students the main goal is to make threads (biopolymer) from an extraction of orange peels (she extract liquid from peels by simply squeezing them). I want to know about nature of fibers, possible usages of them and other conditions that affect reactions in liquids. Please help me to find some sources about this topic.

Hello there,

I don't know much about making biopolymers, but I think it may be worth it to post this question in the physical sciences forum also, where there may be physicists and chemists who may know a bit more about this subject.
