In view of recent technological significance of green cellulosic polymers in environmentally friendly materials, the present study is an attempt to synthesize Saccaharum cilliare-graft-poly (ethyl acrylate) (Saccaharum cilliare-g-PEA) copolymers via pressure-induced free-radical polymerization. The effect of pressure, time, ratio of monomer, solvent, and initiator concentrations were determined to get the premier percentage of grafting. It has been observed from this study that the physicochemical and thermal properties of the grafted cellulosic polymers have increased to a considerable extent and can be a potential material for a number of applications.
