Plant cellulose has a hierarchical structure with hemicelluloses and lignin in cell walls, forming natural composites at the nanometer/micrometer levels. The smallest elements next to cellulose molecules are cellulose microfibrils ~3 nm and several microns in width and length, respectively (Fig. 1). Each cellulose microfibril consists of 30-40 fully extended cellulose chains, and forms crystalline structures with some disordered regions periodically present along the longitudinal direction of…

Advances in Manufacturing Composite Carbon Nanofiber-Based Aerogels

This article provides an overview on manufacturing composite carbon nanofiber-based aerogels through freeze casting technology. As known, freeze casting is a relatively new manufacturing technique

Dispersion of quinacridone pigments using cellulose nanofibers promoted by CH–π interactions and hydrogen bonds

Abstract Organic pigments are prone to aggregate, resulting in decreasing of their properties. Therefore, pigment dispersants are demanded to have both high adsorption capacity and aggregation

Engineering an Injectable Tough Tissue Adhesive through Nanocellulose Reinforcement.

A Thixotropic, Cell-Infiltrative Nanocellulose Hydrogel That Promotes in Vivo Tissue Remodeling.

A thixotropic, cell-infiltrative hydrogel of biofunctionalized nanocellulose that topologically enhances cell infiltration and biochemically upregulates cellular activity for the promotion of tissue remodeling is reported.

Investigation on the recycling of sulfuric acid from pretreatment of cellulose for nanocellulose preparation

Sulfuric acid is often used to pretreat cellulose prior to homogenization and conversion to nanocellulose. It would be economically significant to reuse the acid to close the overall value chain

Structural and functional modification of cellulose nanofibrils using graft copolymerization with glycidyl methacrylate by Fe2+–thiourea dioxide–H2O2 redox system

To graft epoxy and ester functional groups onto cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) and to overcome their poor hydrophobicity, we studied the modification of CNFs using graft copolymerization with glycidyl

Sustained-immunostimulatory nanocellulose scaffold to enhance vaccine efficacy.

N nanocellulose immune scaffold may serve as a sustained-immunostimulatory vaccine platform by providing favorable microenvironments for immune cells thus enhancing vaccine efficacy and enhancing cellular immunity.
