Native cellulose’s interplay in materials and dispersions (CELLO)

This project supported by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) focus on native cellulose´s interplay in materials and dispersions. The overall aim is to study and explain the intra- and intermolecular interactions of cellulose which occur during dissolution, in dispersions and in the regeneration of novel nanobiocomposite materials.

Novel use of native cellulose in dispersions and functional biocomposites

This project supported by the FORMAS and Interreg Sverige-Norge specifically focuses on design and preparation of cellulose-based nanocomposites with added functionalities such as e.g. barrier, antimicrobial, catalytic and electronic properties, starting from water-based solutions of wood cellulose.
