Why mfc can be used in other solvent systems than water

By Marianne Rosenberg Read 24. May 2016

Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) is a green and environmentally friendly material that consists of a complex three dimensional network of cellulose microfibrils.

It is well known that MFC , because of its high surface area and many available hydroxyl (OH) groups, has a high affinity for water. This result in a material with very high water holding capacity that forms strong gels in water at low concentrations.

Since MFC is so fond of water, it might be easy to think that the material would not perform well if it was dispersed in other solvent systems. However, this is far from the truth!

MFC review – what is new in the patent world of Nanocellulose and MFC?

By Marianne Rosenberg Read 10. May 2016

Since around year 2000, there has been a notable increase in the number of patent applications filed regarding new MFC materials, new processes for production and new application areas for MFC. The nomenclature used in the field of MFC varies (nanocellulose, cellulose nanofibers, nanocellulosic fibers etc). In this blog post, I will give you a summary of a few interesting patent applications recently published, using the “original” nomenclature MicroFibrillated Cellulose (MFC).
