  2. 2. Dried nanofibrillated cellulose and its bionanocomposites

    Author : Christian Eyholzer; Olli Ikkala; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Trä och bionanokompositer; Wood and Bionanocomposites;

    Abstract : During the past decade there has been a growing interest in the reinforcement of synthetic polymers with cellulose nanowhiskers and nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) obtained from plants or bacteria. Their beneficial mechanical properties like high stiffness and strength, in combination with their low mass allowed successful reinforcement of water based polymer dispersions (latexes) for the production of solution cast composite films.

  3. 3. Processing and properties of nanocomposites based on polylactic acid, chitin and cellulose

    Author : Natalia Herrera Vargas; Kristiina Oksman; Aji P. Mathew; Jyrki Vuorinen; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nanocomposite; Cellulose; Chitin; Extrusion; Polylactic acid; Trä och bionanokompositer; Wood and Bionanocomposites;

    Abstract : The production of bio-based and biodegradable nanocomposites has gained attention during recent years for environmental reasons; however, the large-scale production of these nanocomposites still poses challenges. The objective of this work has been to prepare bio-based and biodegradable nanocomposites via liquid-assisted extrusion and to gain a deeper understanding of the process and the relationship between the process, composition, structure and properties.
