Fundamentals of nanoscale assembly of cellulose nanofiber

I am interested in fundamentals of cellulose nanofibers (CNF) and cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) in dilute, semi-dilute, and crowded environment. Specifically, for CNFs, semi-flexibility of fibers and its effect on nano-scale dynamics is a key aspect of my project. At the moment, combining simulations with experiments (X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy) is the strategy to proceed the …

Structure, Dynamics and Interactions of Nanofibres in Dilute Hydrodynamically Forced Systems

The ever increasing threat from climate change has spurred the demand for innovative, sustainable materials that could reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Dispersions of cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs), derived from wood, can be spun into filaments that exhibit favourable mechanical properties. However, the structure, dynamics and interactions of the CNFs during the spinning process, which …
