Composite Films of Nanofibrillated Cellulose with Sepiolite: Effect of Preparation Strategy

Cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) are nanomaterials with promising properties to be used in food packaging and printed electronics, thus being logical substitutes to petroleum-based polymers, specifically

Mechanical and structural properties of environmental green composites based on functionalized bacterial cellulose

In this work TiO2 and highly inorganic ceramic clay were successfully immobilized into Bacterial Cellulose (BC), produced by Komagataeibacter xylinus K2G30 (UMCC 2756) strain, in different

Improved Process to Obtain Nanofibrillated Cellulose (CNF) Reinforced Starch Films with Upgraded Mechanical Properties and Barrier Character

An improved procedure to optimize the dispersability of CNF in a thermoplastic starch was put forward, and the hydrolytic susceptibility of the composite was confirmed, being similar to that of the thermoplastics starch.

Preparation of Printable and Biodegradable Cellulose-Laponite Composite for Electronic Device Application

Printable and biodegradable printed circuit boards (PCBs) prepared by using cellulose as the continuous matrix, laponite as flame retardant filler with various weight ratio (0, 5, 10 and 20 wt% with

Characterization and properties of hybrid foams from nanocellulose and kaolin-microfibrillated cellulose composite

A preliminary comparative study between the four tested formulations was conducted to assess the feasibility of the foam as an adsorbent of methylene blue dye and the structure-properties relationship of four foam formulations prepared from combinations of cellulose nanofibrils, CNF, CNC, and kaolin-microfibrillated cellulose composite.

Cellulose Nanofiber-Based Nanocomposite Films Reinforced with Zinc Oxide Nanorods and Grapefruit Seed Extract

The fabrication and characterization of cellulose nanofiber-based nanocomposite films reinforced with zinc oxide nanorods and grapefruit seed extract are reported, which exhibit effective antimicrobial and antioxidant actions.

Evaluation of Different Methods for Cultivating Gluconacetobacter hansenii for Bacterial Cellulose and Montmorillonite Biocomposite Production: Wound-Dressing Applications

Investigation of the production of BC by Gluconacetobacter hansenii ATCC 23769 using different carbon sources shows that bacteria presented higher BC yields in media with higher glucose concentrations after a 14-day incubation period, and the incorporation of MMT significantly improved the mechanical and thermal properties of the BC membranes.



Nanoporous kaolin—cellulose nanofibril composites for printed electronics
