dc.description.abstractThe environmental problem is the greatest concern for scientific community all over the world. Utilization of the waste materials thus, is drawing major interest of the scientific research community. Many developed and developing nations are using industrial and agricultural waste for various applications. The agricultural wastes are being used in various applications to prevent the environmental problem for instance fly ash is being used in the civil construction, like to make the house and roads due to their low density, low weight without compromising their mechanical properties. Similarly rice husk and rice husk ash (RHA) is being used in various applications like in ceramic and refractory industry, glass industry, artificial jewelry, steel industry, cement and construction industry etc. RHA is being used as filler for high strength & low density composites. It is helpful in potential applications in gamma-ray shielding. It can be used as an effective adsorbent for various applications. In most of the countries sugarcane leaves, in general are used to make the comfort fertilizers, to make the rough paper in some extent. Particularly, farmers burn the leaves and it will create the environmental problem. The waste that otherwise would be harmful for the environment, can be safely and successfully used for potential applications. Also it reduces production cost. Some reports have been appearing in the literature to make the glass and glass ceramics using rice husk ash after giving some chemical treatment. Nobody has reported to make the glasses using rice husk ash and sugar cane leave ash. Attempts have been made to synthesize glass and glass ceramics from the rice husk ash to make the glasses taking different content of both the constituents. It is really worthwhile to investigate the effect of sugar cane leave ash on the formation of the glasses, their structure, thermal and optical properties. The as prepared glass and products are characterized using X-ray diffraction, Dilatometery, Raman spectroscopy, FT-IR and UV-spectroscopy.en
