  1. 1. Chemical Pathways to Electrically Conductive Hemicellulose Hydrogels

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Weifeng Zhao; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Electrically conductive; hemicellulose; hydrogels; swelling behavior; aniline oligomers; renewable; polymer synthesis; Elektriskt ledande; hemicellulosa; hydrogel; svällning; anilinoligomerer; förnyelsebar; polymersyntes; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Hydrogels have been extensively explored and are widely used in diverse biomedical applications, such as scaffolds for tissue engineering and vehicles for drug delivery. As one type of important natural polymer-based hydrogel, hemicellulose hydrogels have interesting attributes, including being renewable, non-toxic, biocompatible, biodegradable, and abundantly available.

    Abstract : Wood hydrolysates (WHs) are biomasses obtained in processes involving hydrothermal treatments of wood. WHs are rich in hemicelluloses and lignin. Instead of complicated extraction processes, such as precipitation, or extensive purification, this work utilizes the crude WHs. READ MORE

    Author : Jennie Berglund; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; hemicellulose; wood; glucomannan; xylan; structure; acetylation; flexibility; solubility; interaction with cellulose; stability.; hemicellulosa; trä; glukomannan; xylan; struktur; acetylering; flexibilitet; löslighet; interaktion med cellulosa; stabilitet.; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    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

  5. 5. Biopolymers and materials from rapeseed straw biorefining

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Antonia Svärd; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Rapeseed canola straw; biorefinery; hemicelluloses; lignin; cellulose; cellulose nanoparticles; films; grafting; thermoplastic; biocomposites; rapshalm; bioraffinaderi; hemicellulosa; lignin; cellulosa; cellulosa nano partiklar; hemicellulosafilm; ympning; termoplastisk; biokompositer; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Rapeseed straw was fractionated through a hydrothermal process into its hemicellulose, lignin and cellulose components. In the first step, hemicellulose-rich fractions were extracted. Xylan-rich fractions with high molecular weight, 30,000 – 50,000 g/mol, were obtained at 110 °C and 1.5 M NaOH. READ MORE
