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 …

Structural Modification Softwood Pulp Cell Wall Under Extreme Pressure Conditions 

The ability to modify the structure of the wood-pulp fibre cell wall structure is an attractive means to obtain increased accessibility to the fibre interior and enable functionalization such as controlled drug delivery, interpenetrated networks, and selective removal of metal ions from aqueous mixtures just to mention a few examples. By changing the physical state …
