  1. 1. Microfibrillated cellulose Energy-efficient preparation techniques and key properties

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mikael Ankerfors; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microfibrillated cellulose; microfibrillar cellulose; nanofibrillated cellulose nanofibrillar cellulose; nanocellulose; MFC; NFC; production techniques; energy efficient; gel properties; films; enzymes; carboxymethylation; carboxymethyl cellulose; CMC; mechanical properties; oxygen barrier; homogenization;

    Abstract : This work describes three alternative processes for producing microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) in which pulp fibres are first pre-treated and then homogenized using a high-pressure homogenizer. In one process, fibre cell wall delamination was facilitated with a combined enzymatic and mechanical pre-treatment. READ MORE

    Abstract : This work describes three alternative processes for producing microfibrillated cellulose (MFC; also referred to as cellulose nanofibrils, CNF) in which bleached pulp fibres are first pretreated and then homogenized using a high-pressure homogenizer. In one process, fibre cell wall delamination was facilitated by a combined enzymatic and mechanical pretreatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Rheological Properties of Microfibrillated Cellulose

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Tobias Moberg; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rheological properties; creep; Extensional viscosity; Microfibrillated cellulose; suspensions;

    Abstract : Cellulose has for a long time been used by man. It is renewable and an easily recyclable resource. Mostly it has been used in either its native form as wood or in the form of fibres. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cellulose Nanofibril Networks and Composites Preparation, Structure and Properties

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Marielle Henriksson; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose nanocomposites; microfibrillated cellulose; nanofibrils; biofibers; mechanical properties; deformation mechanisms; molar mass; endoglucanase; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP 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.

  5. 5. Cellulose-based electrical insulation materials : Dielectric and mechanical properties

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rebecca Hollertz; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose; dielectric materials; electrical insulation; nanocellulose; nanoparticles; streamer; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : The reliability of the generation and distribution of electricity is highly dependent on electrical insulation and is essential for the prosperity of our society and a ubiquitous part of our everyday life. The present study shows how some important material properties affect the electrical properties of cellulose-based electrical insulation systems which are used together with mineral oil in high-voltage transformers.
