Environmental science and engineering applications of nanocellulose-based nanocomposites
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-06-26)
Compared with cellulose, the primary component of the paper we use every day, nanocellulose has a much smaller diameter (typically <10 nm) that renders it many unique properties. Amongst many others, these properties include ...
Characterization of Particle Emissions and Fate of Nanomaterials During Incineration
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-01-24)
As the use of nanotechnology in consumer products continues to grow, it is inevitable that some nanomaterials will end up in the waste stream and will be incinerated. Through laboratory-scale incineration of paper and ...
Toxicity of Cellulose Nanocrystals: A Review
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 ...
