Surface modification of nanofibrillated cellulose films by atmospheric pressure dielectric barrier discharge
A dielectric barrier discharge in a gas mixture of tetrafluoromethane (CF4) and O2 was used for tailoring the surface properties of nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) films. The surface chemicalExpand
