Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), especially the functionalized, have been used as reinforcement to produce biodegradable nanocomposites due to its abundance, biodegradability and good thermal and mechanical properties. The incorporation of CNC to poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) (PBAT) can influence the polymer properties. However, the composites properties can be better or worse th...
Carbon nanotubes (CNT), especially the functionalized ones, have been added to polymer matrixes due to its mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. The incorporation of CNTs to high density polyethylene (HDPE) can improve the matrix properties, but it changes the crystallization/melting process as well. The study of crystallization/melting of polymers is very important, since it a...
This study intends to prepare cellulose foam filled with 45S5 bioglass for bone tissue engineering. Bioglass 45S5 (46.1 mol% SiO2, 26.9 mol% CaO, 24.4 mol% Na2O, and 2.6 mol% P2O5) will be prepared using a traditional melt-quenching technique. The foams will be prepared by lyophilization. Bioglass will be added to the nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) suspension and the mixture will be pl...
