The rough morphological structure of ternary blend composite membranes was studied. The surface roughness of the composites were analysed. Recurrent topographies and the reliance of length-scale on rough surfaces were established in the analysis done by scanning probe electron microscopy. The membranes with increasing amount of sisal fibre exhibited higher roughness surface. � 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
