The properties of emulsions stabilized by nanosized cellulose particles (denominated also microfibrillated cellulose; MFC) were investigated. The wettability (hydrophobicity) of the MFC was changed through surface modification with chlorodimethyl isopropylsilane. The modified MFC was characterized with Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Using MFC of intermediate hydrophobicity resulted in water-in-oil emulsions within a range of oil/water… 

Dual Functions of TEMPO-Oxidized Cellulose Nanofibers in Oil-in-Water Emulsions: a Pickering Emulsifier and a Unique Dispersion Stabilizer.

The emulsifying and dispersing mechanisms of oil-in-water emulsions stabilized by 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-oxyl (TEMPO)-oxidized cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) have been investigated. The

Oil-in-Water Emulsions Stabilized by Cellulose Nanofibrils—The Effects of Ionic Strength and pH

The work showed that enzymatically treated CNFs could be suitable for use in food systems where NaCl and acid are present, while the more highly charged TEMPO-CNFs might be more suited for other applications, where they can contribute to a high emulsion viscosity even at low concentrations.

Preparation of double Pickering emulsions stabilized by chemically tailored nanocelluloses.

Nanocellulose-based Pickering emulsions can be designed with a substantial degree of control, as demonstrated by the stability of the chemically tailored NFC double emulsion, and it was demonstrated that increased nanofiber length leads to increased stability.

Combining cellulose nanofibrils and galactoglucomannans for enhanced stabilization of future food emulsions

The use of wood-derived cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) or galactoglucomannans (GGM) for emulsion stabilization may be a way to obtain new environmentally friendly emulsifiers. Both have previously been



Properties and characterization of hydrophobized microfibrillated cellulose

Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) obtained by disintegration of bleached softwood sulphite pulp in a homogenizer, was hydrophobically modified by surface silylation with chlorodimethyl isopropylsilane

Chemical surface modifications of microfibrillated cellulose

Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) was prepared by disintegration of bleached softwood sulphite pulp through mechanical homogenization. The surface of the MFC was modified using different chemical

Water‐in‐oil Emulsions Stabilized by Hydrophobized Microfibrillated Cellulose

The properties of water‐in‐toluene emulsions stabilized solely by hydrophobized microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) were investigated. By varying the degree of surface substitution (DSS), the

Emulsion-stabilizing Effect of Bacterial Cellulose

The bacterial cellulose produced in an agitated culture (Ag-BC) showed the highest emulsion-stabilizing effect among the examined cellulosk materials. It was clarified that a mechanical barrier and a


ABSTRACT Miorocrystalline cellulose stabilized emulsions (o/w) were evaluated by means of brightfield and polarized light microscopy, freeze-etch electron microscopy, droplet size analyses and

Effects of oil type and aqueous phase composition on oil–water mixtures containing particles of intermediate hydrophobicity

The behaviour of emulsions stabilised by partially hydrophobic spherical silica particles is described for systems in which the oil type is varied in mixtures with water, and for

A stable multiple emulsion system bearing isoniazid: preparation and characterization.

The emulsions were characterized for droplet size, percent formation of multiple emulsion, release rate effect of Tween-80 in external phase, phase volume ratio on release, and stability during aging at various storage conditions.
