Low density and wet stable networks of cellulose nanofibrils with a tailored 3D shape for advanced applications

Treesearch research themes:

Project partners:



The project has the following purpose and aims: (a) Novel wet-stable, low density networks of cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) with a tailored 3D structure; (b) Tailored structures through controlled freeze-linking of the CNF followed by a formation of interpenetrated polymeric networks inside the cellulose network for controlled liquid spreading and liquid holding capacity; (c) Tailored 3D networks of CNF as substrates for tissue engineering; (d) A theoretical model describing the liquid spreading in the porous networks; (e) Publications in high-ranked scientific journals.
