Surfactants – a tool to tailor surface chemistry of MFC?

By Rebecca Blell 22. August 2017

One of the advantages of cellulosic materials (including nanocellulose and microfibrillated cellulose (MFC)) compared to synthetic materials, is their environmentally friendly profile as well as their biodegradability. This profile is impacted by the number of chemical reactions the product will undergo during the manufacturing process. It would therefore be favorable to obtain desired chemical properties via physical adsorption instead of chemical reactions.

In this blog post, you will find examples on possible effects of surface adsorbed surfactants on cellulosic materials.
