  1. 1. Biodegradable Blends and Nanocomposite Films with Amylopectin, Poly(lactic acid) and Chitosan Matrices

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : David Nordqvist; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; amylopectin; chitosan; microfibrillated cellulose; nanocomposite; montmorillonite; coupling agent; amylopektin; kitosan; mikrofibrillär cellulose; nanokomposit; montmorillonit; kompatibilisator; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : Användningan av engångsförpackningar har ökat kraftigt de senaste åren. Den absolut största delen av dessa förpackningar tillverkars av oljebaserade plaster såsom polyetylen (PE) och polypropylen (PP). Dessa har även en oerhört lång nedbrytningstid, vilket gör det viktigt att finna mer miljövänliga alternativ. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wood hydrolysates- New concepts in renewable material design

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yingzhi Zhu Ryberg; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood hydrolysate; oxygen barrier; coatings; films; hemicellulose; lignin; CMC; chitosan; HSP; PALS; spray drying; SEM with tensile test; glyoxal crosslinking.; vedhydrolysat; syrebarriäregenskaper; ytbeläggningar; filmer; hemicellulosa; lignin; CMC; kitosan; HSP; PALS; spraytorkning; SEM med dragprovning; glyoxal tvärbindning.;

    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

    Abstract : The transition to a more biobased society introduces both new opportunities and new challenges as we replace nonrenewable materials with renewable alternatives. One important challenge will be to control microbial growth on materials, both to protect the materials from biological degradation and to prevent the spread of infections and toxins that can cause illness.
