  1. 1. Cellulose-water interaction: a spectroscopic study

    Author : Erik L Lindh; István Furó; Lennart Salmén; Lisbeth G Thygesen; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cellulose; water; hydrogen exchange; deuterium; NMR spectroscopy; FT-IR spectroscopy; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The human society of today has a significantly negative impact on the environment and needs to change its way of living towards a more sustainable path if to continue to live on a healthy planet. One path is believed to be an increased usage of naturally degradable and renewable raw materials and, therefore, attention has been focused on the highly abundant biopolymer cellulose. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the Solubility of Wood Hemicelluloses in Water and its Influence on the Adsorption at Cellulose/Water Interfaces

    Author : Saina Kishani; Lars Wågberg; Bernard Cathala; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wood; Hemicellulose; Solubility; Adsorption; Interaction; Cellulose; Size distribution;

    Abstract : Hemicelluloses are a group of natural polysaccharides and one of the main components of wood. The availability and biodegradability of these polymers have created a great interest in developing new bio-based materials or composites from these materials for different end-use purposes.

  3. 3. Cellulose nanofibril materials with controlled structure : the influence of colloidal interactions

    Author : Andreas Fall; Lars Wågberg; Anna Finne Wistrand; Paul Gatenholm; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Colloidal stability; cellulose nanofibrils; nanofibers; nanostructured materials; biocomposite; DLVO; gel;

    Abstract : Nanoparticles are very interesting components. Due to their very large specific surface area they possess properties in between molecules and macroscopic materials. In addition, a material built up of hierarchically assembled nanoparticles could obtain unique properties, not possessed by the nanoparticles themself. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ethyl(hydroxyethyl)cellulose and Some Model Uncharged Polymers: A Calorimetric Study of Their Interaction with Surfactants in Aqueous Solution

    Author : Geng Wang; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []

    Abstract : The interactions between uncharged polymers, e.g. ethyl(hydroxylethyl)cellulose (EHEC) and some model polymers, and ionic surfactants in aqueous solution has been studied by using isothermal titration and differential scanning calorimetry. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellulose Nanofibril Networks and Composites : Preparation, Structure and Properties

    Author : Marielle Henriksson; Lars Berglund; Alain Dufresne; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; cellulose nanocomposites; microfibrillated cellulose; nanofibrils; biofibers; mechanical properties; deformation mechanisms; molar mass; endoglucanase; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Träbaserade cellulosananofibriller är intressanta som förstärkande fas i polymera nanokompositer; detta främst på grund av den kristallina cellulosans höga styvhet och på grund av nanofibrillernas förmåga att bilda nätverk. Cellulosananofibriller kan användas i form av mikrokristallin cellulosa, MCC, som har lågt längd/diameter förhållande, eller i form av mikrofibrillerad cellulosa, MFC, med högt längd/diameter förhållande.
