Biorefinery Strategies for Co–generation of Cellulose Nanocrystals and Value–added Products from Wood PulpDownload
Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are sustainable and renewable nanoparticles derived from cellulose with desirable properties for various applications. CNCs can be isolated from purified cellulose such as wood pulp by concentrated sulfuric acid hydrolysis. The acid degrades non–crystalline cellulose...
Cellulose nanocrystals conjugated with metallophthalocyanines: Applications in visible-light driven photocatalysts and memory devicesDownload
Cellulose is the most abundantly available renewable polymers on the planet, which have received scientific attention from numerous research communities. Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are crystalline nanorods obtained through the acid hydrolysis of cellulosic materials such as wood pulp, cotton...
Since prehistoric times, unsaturated plant oils, referred to as drying oils, have been used as a natural film forming material as result of oxidation-induced polymerization. Here, we report on the use of oleochemical reactions and photo-chemistry to develop three coating systems with low volatile...
Canada has great forest area with tremendous wood-based cellulose resource. However, the research effort for wood fibers to develop wood cellulose-based advanced materials is still limited. The overall objective of this research is to provide some feasible and efficient approaches for the...
