Modification, characterization and production of nanocelluloses

Modification, characterization and production of nanocelluloses

The nanocelluloses will be produced for the integration in the ORMOCER®-matrix or for complete nanocellulosic films. The production of the nanofibers will be carried out by mechanical processes or in combination with chemicals or enzymes.

To ensure or improve the compatibility with, and the incorporation and chemical fixation of the fibers to the other materials (hybrid polymers), the surface of the fibers will be modified with alkoxide, –Si(OR)3 bearing or chemically reactive groups which are able to undergo hydrolysis and condensation reactions.

Project Activities

To reach the targeted goals, the project partners work hand in hand and to make sure that the results can be transferred into the production process after the end of the project, and an intensive exchange between the partners and countries is achieved. The project work is portioned in various technical activities, which, in addition to the important aspects such as reporting, dissemination and explications represent the center of the project.
