Cellulose Dissolution in Ionic Liquid: Ion Binding Revealed by Neutron Scattering

October 12th, 2018|Comments Off on Cellulose Dissolution in Ionic Liquid: Ion Binding Revealed by Neutron Scattering

Our paper has recently been published in Macromolecules. The work investigated dissolution of cellulose in 1-ethyl-3-methyl-imidazolioum acetate (EMIMAc) ionic liquid (IL) using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) with contrast variation. Cellulose and EMIMAc of different deuteration [...]

Multi-Layer Filters: Adsorption and Filtration Mechanisms for Improved Separation

September 24th, 2018|Comments Off on Multi-Layer Filters: Adsorption and Filtration Mechanisms for Improved Separation

Our recent work on the development of multi-layer depth inorganic cellulose filters is published in Frontiers in Chemistry. Filters made of cellulose fiber and perlite particles were prepared using a wet laying papermaking technique. Polyamide-amine-epichlorohydrin [...]

Pickering Emulsions Electrostatically Stabilized by Cellulose Nanocrystals

September 24th, 2018|Comments Off on Pickering Emulsions Electrostatically Stabilized by Cellulose Nanocrystals

This work is recently published in Frontiers in Chemistry. Cellulose Nanocrystals (CNC) are explored to stabilize oil/water emulsions for their ability to adsorb at the oil/water interface. In this work, the role of electrostatic forces in [...]
