Nanofiber composites of polyvinyl alcohol and cellulose nanocrystals: manufacture and characterization.
Cellulose nanocrystals (CN) were used to reinforce nanofibers in composite mats produced via electrospinning of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) with two different concentrations of acetyl groups. UltrathinExpand
