    Abstract : Food packaging should ensure the safety and quality of food, minimize spoilage and provide an easy way of storing and handling it. Barrier coatings are generally used to meet the demands placed on fibre-based food packages, as these have the ability to regulate the amount of gases that can enter them. READ MORE

  2. 2. Inorganic and organic polymer-grafted nanoparticles : their nanocomposites and characterization

    Author : Carmen Cobo Sanchez; Eva Malmström; Henrik Hillborg; Anna Barros Timmons; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Si-ATRP; ATRP; polyelectrolytes; rGO; aluminium oxide; silica; CNF; CNC; PCL; LDPE; EBA; nanocomposites; matrix-free; extrusion; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Nanocomposites (NCs) have been widely studied in the past decades due to the promising properties that nanoparticles (NPs) offer to a polymer matrix, such as increased thermal stability and non-linear electrical resistivity. It has also been shown that the interphase between the two components is the key to achieving the desired improvements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wood Hemicelluloses - Fundamental Insights on Biological and Technical Properties

    Abstract : Hemicelluloses are a group of heterogeneous polysaccharides representing around 30 % of wood where the dominating types are xylans, glucomannans and xyloglucans. Hemicelluloses complex molecular structure makes it difficult to understand the relationship between structure and properties entirely, and their biological role is not yet fully verified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cellulosic Thermal Insulation with Improved Water Resistance and Fire Retardancy

    Author : Chao Zheng; Monica Ek; Dongfang Li; Lennart Salmén; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Bio-based; Cellulosic; Fire retardant; Thermal insulation; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Sweden is one of the largest countries by area in Europe, and almost 70% of it is covered by forest. These abundant forest resources benefit the Swedish bioeconomy, but the pulp and paper industry is facing the challenge of a decrease in the demand for printing paper due to a significant shift to electronic media; therefore, it is a priority to use pulp to produce alternative value-added products, such as thermal insulating materials in buildings.

  5. 5. Cellulose-fiber-based thermal insulation materials with fungal resistance, improved water resistance and reaction-to-fire properties

    Author : Chao Zheng; Monica Ek; Dongfang Li; Lars Wågberg; Folke Björk; KTH; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; biorefinery; birch bark; cellulose; reaction-to-fire properties; fungal resistance; thermal insulation; water resistance; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Thermal insulation materials made from natural fibrous materials, such as cellulose fibers, have advantages over others from a sustainability point of view. However, cellulosic materials are generally prone to mold and absorb moisture, and these have negative effects on the insulation properties, the durability of insulation materials, and interior air quality.
