During the past two decades the use of bioplastics, as a suitable alternative to petroleum-based plastics, has attracted researchers' attention to a great extent. In this study, the whole wheat four and straw cellulose at different proportions were mixed with glycerol and bioplastics sheets were obtained by a press type molding machine. The mechanical properties of samples were examined on compositions prepared by whole wheat weight in three proportions of 70, 60 and 50% and the cellulose in three proportions 75, 70 and 65%. The tensile tests on the samples indicated that with lowering proportions of both four and cellulose, the modulus of elasticity and tensile...
