Magnetic nanopaper

This project is focused on production and development of magnetic nanopaper with ferrimagnetic properties. Cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) are used as a stiff and strong matrix of natural origin, while ferrimagnatic nanoparticles of SrFe12O19 are added to bring in the functionality. Nanopaper is prepared by spray coating technique which is simple to handle and to upscale. …

3D nanotomography of wood fibres

Typically imaging of wood cells by 3D nanotomography is performed with the help of TEM or cryo TEM. To get a proper transmission signal, samples should be cut down to 100 nm thickness or even less. In this project we want to avoid extreme sectioning of wood pieces where observation area includes only a part …

Nanocellulose based filaments for advanced applications. In situ SAXS studies of wood delignification.

To develop and characterize filaments for advanced applications, i.e. green smart textiles or conductive fibers. Use a flow-focusing setup and cellulose nanofibers as a main material for preparation of filaments with high mechanical performance. To understand  the fundamentals behind alignment and particle organization. To study impact of hydrolysis and delignification of wood chips on their structure …
