New specific chemical modifications for fibre functionalization including topo-selective modifications and advanced structure and chemical characterization

Identify robust modification strategies that unfolds a new generation of deliginified wet wood fibres with customizable properties. The scientific question that need to be addressed is strongly coupled to the apparent pore size of deliginified wet wood fibres and thereof the diffusion aspects of molecular/macromolecular/nanoparticle probes to homogenously bind to the exterior and interior of …

Surface characterization of polymeric composites and their interaction with biological tissue

This project is dedicated to understanding the properties of polymeric networks and composites thereof. Cellulose nanofibres and other fillers are included in polymeric matrices to enhance specific properties such as adhesive, mechanical or biological. The final goal is to generate next generation tissue adhesives in which bio-based materials are used to a larger extend. The …
