  1. 1. Hemicellulose as barrier material

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Hartman Jonas; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Gunnar Henriksson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hemicellulose; galactoglucomannan; plasma surface treatment; vaporphase grafting; benzylation; contact angle; oxygen permeability; solution casting; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Cellulose and paper engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Cellulosa- och pappersteknik;

    Abstract : Polysaccharides constitute an important source of raw materials for the packaging industry today. Polysaccharides have good natural barrier properties which are necessary for packaging films. Cellulose is the forerunner among renewable polymers for such applications. Hemicelluloses represent a new interesting breed of barrier materials. READ MORE
