  • Intra-Ring Compression Strength of Low Density Hardwoods 

    Zink-Sharp, Audrey; Price, Carlile (Universidad del Bío-Bío, 2006)
    Engineered wood composites are being crafted with increasingly smaller and smaller components, yet a search of the literature indicates a lack of intra-ring mechanical property data for almost all commercial wood types, ...

  • Multifunctional cellulose esters by olefin cross-metathesis and thiol-Michael addition 

    Meng, Xiangtao; Roy Choudhury, Shreya; Edgar, Kevin J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-04-25)
    Olefin cross-metathesis (CM) has been shown to be a versatile, mild, modular, and efficient approach to polysaccharide modification. One issue with regard to this approach is the susceptibility of the initial α,β-unsaturated ...
  • Amphiphilic hydroxyalkyl cellulose derivatives for amorphous solid dispersion prepared by olefin cross-metathesis 

    Dong, Yifan; Mosquera-Giraldo, Laura I.; Troutman, Jacob; Skogstad, Brittny; Taylor, Lynne S.; Edgar, Kevin J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-07-07)
    Olefin cross-metathesis (CM) has enabled design and synthesis of diverse, amphiphilic cellulose ether derivatives (e.g. of ethyl and methyl cellulose). In this paper, hydroxyalkyl cellulose was selected as a hydrophilic ...
  • Variegatic acid from Serpula lacyrmans reduces FeIII and interacts with other fungal metabolites for location-specific generation and scavenging of reactive oxygen species 

    Zhu, Yuan; Mahaney, James; Jellison, Jody; Cao, Jinzhen; Gressler, Julia; Hoffmeister, Dirk; Goodell, Barry (2016)
    This study aims to clarify the role of variegatic acid (VA) secreted from Serpula lacyrmans in a chelator-mediated Fenton (CMF) system, including FeIII reduction and the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the ...
  • Preparation and evaluation of nanocellulose-gold nanoparticle nanocomposites for SERS applications 

    Wei, Haoran; Rodriguez, Katia; Renneckar, Scott; Leng, Weinan; Vikesland, Peter J. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-06-09)
    Nanocellulose is of research interest due to its extraordinary optical, thermal, and mechanical properties. The incorporation of guest nanoparticles into nanocellulose substrates enables production of novel nanocomposites ...
  • Imparting functional variety to cellulose ethers via olefin cross-metathesis 

    Dong, Yifan; Edgar, Kevin J. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-04-09)
    Olefin cross-metathesis is a valuable new approach for imparting functional variety to cellulose ethers. Starting from commercially available ethyl cellulose, terminally unsaturated alkyl groups were appended as metathesis ...
  • Cytotoxicity and Cellular Uptake of Cellulose Nanocrystals 

    Dong, Shuping; Hirani, Anjali A.; Colacino, Katelyn R.; Lee, Yong Woo; Roman, Maren (2012-09-21)
    There is growing evidence that filamentous nanoparticles offer advantages over spherical ones in drug delivery applications. The purpose of this study was to assess the potential of rod-like, plant-derived cellulose ...
  • Toxicity of Cellulose Nanocrystals: A Review 

    Roman, Maren (2015-02)
    Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are a biobased nanomaterial attracting increasing interest for a range of potential applications. This article reviews the current literature on the pulmonary, oral, dermal, and cytotoxicity ...
