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!
