WebFOCUS Report
Project description
Nanoparticles from various sources have envisioned to be potential as chemicals besides to their material use, due to their large specific surface, stability and chemical versatility. The focus of this research initiative is on aspects and phenomena related fabrication and use of cellulose nanofibrils as bionanochemicals in aqueous environment. Especially, the project will address the preparation of functionalized cellulose nanofibrils using deep eutectic solvent systems, fundamental behavior and interactions of nanofibrils in water and demonstration of their performance as bionanochemicals with flotation and flocculation systems.
