Comprehensive elucidation of the effect of residual lignin on the physical, barrier, mechanical and surface properties of nanocellulose films
We elucidate the effect of residual lignin on the interfacial, physical and mechanical properties of lignocellulose nanofibrils (LCNF) and respective nanopapers. Fibers containing ∼0, 2, 4, and 14Expand

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

Lignin-based hydrogels with "super-swelling" capacities for dye removal.
Lignin is a complex natural polymer and it is one of the main constituent of the lignocellulosic biomass. Moreover, it is a bio-renewable material and it is available in large amounts as by-productExpand
