    Author : Carl Moser; Mikael Lindström; Gunnar Henriksson; Kristin Syverud; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cellulose; Nanofibers; Characterization; Homogenization; Endoglucanase; TEMPO; Specific surface area; Atomic force microscopy; Cellulosa; Nanofibrer; Karakterisering; Homogenisering; Endoglukanas; TEMPO; Specifik ytarea; Atomkraftmikroskopi; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : The usage of wood has been a dominant driving force during the evolution of the human species. It allowed us to cook food, build tools, put roofs over our head and explore the world. The fibers making up the tree has been the most important way to store and transmit knowledge in the form of paper for centuries. READ MORE

  2. 2. Chemical Modification of Electrospun Cellulose Nanofibers

    Author : Johannes Thunberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cellulose Dissolution; Ionic liquid; Polypyrrole; Zeolitic Imidazolate Framework; Nanocellulose; Electrospinning; Cellulose; Metal-organic Framework;

    Abstract : The forest industry is a large part of the Swedish economy and the export of pulp, paper and wood products constitutes 11% of the total Swedish export of goods. The main product of a pulp mill is purified cellulose, which has many great properties like biodegradability and non-toxicity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Melt-processing and properties of thermoplastic composites based on ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer reinforced with wood nanocellulose

    Author : Abhijit Venkatesh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Injection moulding; Cellulose nanofibers; Melt rheology; Cellulose nanocrystals; Mechanical properties; Cellulose; Pulp fibers; Composite; Extrusion;

    Abstract : Composites reinforced with cellulose nanofibers (CNF), both modified and unmodified cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and pulp fibers have been prepared through small-scale and large-scale methods. The composites were produced by water-assisted dispersion mixing, drying and compression moulding on the laboratory scale and by extrusion and injection moulding for the large-scale production.

  4. 4. Biocomposites Based on Core-Shell Cellulose Nanofibers : Preparation, Structure, and Properties

    Author : Kasinee Prakobna; Lars Berglund; David Plackett; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biocomposites; cellulose nanofibers; polysaccharides; holocellulose; nanostructure; dispersion; mechanical properties; hygromechanical properties; moisture stability; film; porous material; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) are of interest as load-bearing components for polymer matrix nanocomposites. A wide range of nanostructured materials including nanopaper/films, foams, aerogels, and hydrogels can be prepared from CNFs. The material performance can be fine-tuned when CNFs are combined with different polymer matrices. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tailoring Cellulose Nanofibrils for Advanced Materials

    Author : Núria Butchosa Robles; Qi Zhou; Kristiina Oksman; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose nanofibrils; bacterial cellulose; surface modification; carboxymethyl cellulose; polyethylene glycol; chitin nanocrystals; bactericidal activity; nanofibrils orientation; water redispersability; mechanical properties; dye removal; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) are nanoscale fibers of high aspect ratio that can be isolated from a wide variety of cellulosic sources, including wood and bacterial cellulose. With high strength despite of their low density, CNFs are a promising renewable building block for the preparation of nanostructured materials and composites. READ MORE
