Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) are an emerging green nanomaterial with a unique property set that permits its use to enhance traditional materials in various ways. One of the main focuses has been to impart the incredible mechanical stiffness of these nano particles into conventional thermoplastic...
Effect of Cellulose Nanocrystal Particles on Rheology, Transport and Mechanical Properties of Oil Well Cement SystemsDownload
The increase in oil consumption during the past few decades, coupled with oil/gas extraction from shale in the recent years has increased drilling and cementing demands. Well cementing operation is one of the most crucial and important steps in any well completion. However, since it takes place...
Nanofiber production from agricultural straw biomass using pressurized fluids and ultrasound processing for tissue engineering scaffoldsDownload
Agricultural straw is an abundant lignocellulosic biomass mainly composed of cellulose (33-75%), hemicellulose (13-37%) and lignin (3-31%) that offers great potential as a feed material for a biorefinery. Emerging technologies such as pressurized fluid fractionation and high-intensity ultrasound...
