PhD project: Fundamentals of cellulose-cellulose interactions with the aim of understanding how to overcome the existing cellulose/cellulose linkages within the fibre wall.
Supervisor: Lars Wågberg
Dissertation planned to: 2024
The focus of my research area are the irreversible structural changes that occur in cellulose fibres when they are dried for the first time below a certain moisture content is. This is most observable through a permanent decreased ability to swell and hold water and the permanent closure of pores within the fibre wall.
