  1. 1. The kinetics of cellulose enzymatic hydrolysis : Implications of the synergism between enzymes

    Författare :Priit Väljamäe; Jan-Christer Janson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Acetobacter; Cellobiohydrolase; Cellobiose; Cellulase; Cellulose; Diffusion; Endoglucanase; Hydrolysis; Inhibition; Kinetics; Model; Product; Substrate; Surface; Synergism; Trichoderma reesei; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : The hydrolysis kinetics of bacterial cellulose and its derivatives by Trichoderma reesei cellulases was studied. The cellulose surface erosion model was introduced to explain the gradual and strong retardation of the rate of enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Structural changes during cellulose composite processing

    Författare :Helena Halonen; Monica Ek; Tommy Iversen; Derek D. Gray; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; CP MAS 13C NMR; cellulose; fibril aggregation; biocomposite; compression moulding; supramolecular structure;

    Sammanfattning : Two approaches for creating a new all-cellulose composite material have been studied: the biosynthesis of compartmentalised bacterial cellulose fibril aggregates and the compression moulding of commercial chemical wood pulps processed with only water. The objective was to study the structural changes during processing and the complexity of relating the mechanical properties of the final biocomposites to the nanoscale structure was highlighted.

  3. 3. Surface modification of cellulose materials : from wood pulps to artificial blood vessels

    Författare :Lage Ahrenstedt; Harry Brumer; Lars Wågberg; KTH; []

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the improvement of two radically different cellulose materials, paper and artificial blood vessels, constructed from two diverse cellulose sources, wood pulp and Acetobacter xylinum. The improvement of both materials was possible due to the natural affinity of the hemicellulose xyloglucan for cellulose. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Engineering the shape of bacterial cellulose and its use as blood vessel replacement

    Författare :Henrik Bäckdahl; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :tissue engineering.; smooth muscle cells; bacterial cellulose; scaffold design; tubular fermentation; biocompatibility evaluation; Blood vessel; vascular graft;

    Sammanfattning : Tissue loss and organ failure are major health problems that impose great costs on society. Cardiovascular diseases are responsible for 36% of mortalities and the disease burden among adults over the age of 60. The single largest cardiovascular disease is atherosclerosis in the coronary artery. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Tailoring Cellulose Nanofibrils for Advanced Materials

    Författare :Núria Butchosa Robles; Qi Zhou; Kristiina Oksman; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose nanofibrils; bacterial cellulose; surface modification; carboxymethyl cellulose; polyethylene glycol; chitin nanocrystals; bactericidal activity; nanofibrils orientation; water redispersability; mechanical properties; dye removal; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Sammanfattning : Cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) are nanoscale fibers of high aspect ratio that can be isolated from a wide variety of cellulosic sources, including wood and bacterial cellulose. With high strength despite of their low density, CNFs are a promising renewable building block for the preparation of nanostructured materials and composites. LÄS MER
