  1. 1. Microfibrillated cellulose : Energy-efficient preparation techniques and key properties

    Författare :Mikael Ankerfors; Lars Wågberg; Minna Hakkarainen; Paul Gatenholm; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microfibrillated cellulose; microfibrillar cellulose; nanofibrillated cellulose nanofibrillar cellulose; nanocellulose; MFC; NFC; production techniques; energy efficient; gel properties; films; enzymes; carboxymethylation; carboxymethyl cellulose; CMC; mechanical properties; oxygen barrier; homogenization;

    Sammanfattning : This work describes three alternative processes for producing microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) in which pulp fibres are first pre-treated and then homogenized using a high-pressure homogenizer. In one process, fibre cell wall delamination was facilitated with a combined enzymatic and mechanical pre-treatment. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Cellulose nanofibril materials with controlled structure : the influence of colloidal interactions

    Författare :Andreas Fall; Lars Wågberg; Anna Finne Wistrand; Paul Gatenholm; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Colloidal stability; cellulose nanofibrils; nanofibers; nanostructured materials; biocomposite; DLVO; gel;

    Sammanfattning : Nanoparticles are very interesting components. Due to their very large specific surface area they possess properties in between molecules and macroscopic materials. In addition, a material built up of hierarchically assembled nanoparticles could obtain unique properties, not possessed by the nanoparticles themself. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Ultrastructure of the Primary Cell Wall of Softwood Fibres Studied using Dynamic FT-IR Spectroscopy

    Författare :Jasna Stevanic Srndovic; Lars Wågberg; Per M. Claesson; Paul Gatenholm; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; primary cell wall; polymer interactions; viscoelasticity; dynamic FT-IR spectroscopy; dynamic 2D FT-IR spectroscopy; cellulose; xyloglucan; pectin; protein; lignin; low degree sulphonation; cellulose allomorphs; Wood fibre and forest products; Träfiber- och virkeslära;

    Sammanfattning : The primary cell wall is a complex multipolymer system whose composite structure has been mostly determined from chemical and biochemical studies. Although the primary cell wall serves a central role, with regard to the connective properties of fibres, knowledge about the interactions among the polymers, when it comes to the mechanical properties, is very limited.

  4. 4. Biofilms on silicone rubber for outdoor high voltage insulation

    Författare :Stina Wallström; Sigbritt Karlsson; Paul Gatenholm; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Chemical engineering; polymer technology; Kemiteknik; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Silicone rubber high voltage insulators are sometimes colonised by microorganisms which form a biofilm on the surface of the infected unit. In this work insulators exposed to the outdoor environment in Sweden, Sri Lanka and Tanzania respectively have been studied. LÄS MER
