In this thesis, measurement and analysis of colloidal forces between an atomic force microscope (AFM) probe and a topographically patterned substrate are reported. The energy between the patterned substrate and a smooth flat plate was characterized mathematically using Surface Element Integration...
Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are an emerging renewable and sustainable nanomaterial which has received increasing attention. They are abundant, nontoxic, biodegradable and chemically inert. CNCs have unique characteristics not met by traditional cellulose-derived materials, leading...
