Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Polymer
  • Organic chemistry

Sabu Thomas focuses on Composite material, Natural rubber, Fiber, Natural fiber and Ultimate tensile strength. SISAL, Dynamic mechanical analysis, Composite number, Polymer and Nanocomposite are the primary areas of interest in his Composite material study. His studies deal with areas such as Styrene-butadiene, Polymer blend and Polymer chemistry as well as Natural rubber.

His Fiber research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Adhesion, Polyester and Chemical modification. As part of one scientific family, Sabu Thomas deals mainly with the area of Natural fiber, narrowing it down to issues related to the Absorption of water, and often Sorption. His research in Ultimate tensile strength intersects with topics in Young's modulus, Flexural strength, Modulus and Scanning electron microscope.

His most cited work include:

  • Biofibres and Biocomposites (1384 citations)
  • A review on interface modification and characterization of natural fiber reinforced plastic composites (838 citations)
  • Dynamic mechanical analysis of banana fiber reinforced polyester composites (631 citations)
