On the effects of hydroxyl substitution degree and molecular weight on mechanical and water barrier properties of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose films
(Elsevier B.V., 2018-04-01)
In line with the increasing demand for sustainable packaging materials, this contribution aimed to investigate the film-forming properties of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) to correlate its chemical structure with ...
Thermo-sensitive chitosan-cellulose derivative hydrogels: swelling behaviour and morphologic studies
Hydrogels are three-dimensional, hydrophilic, polymer networks that are able to imbibe large amounts of water or biological fluids, while maintaining their dimensional stability. The polymer binding might be achieved by ...
Development of cellulose-based bactericidal nanocomposites containing silver nanoparticles and their use as active food packaging
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDOXFORD, 2012)
The use of nanomaterials, including metallic as active fillers in polymeric nanocomposites for food packaging has been extensively investigated. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), in particular, have been exploited for technological ...
Optimized and scaled-up production of cellulose-reinforced biodegradable composite films made up of carrot processing waste
(Elsevier B.V., 2018-10-01)
The ever-growing environmental concern arising from the unrestricted exploitation of fossil sources for the massive production of non-biodegradable materials encourages research on alternative renewable resources. We herein ...
Cationization of polysaccharides; a path to greener derivatives with many industrial applications
Cationic polysaccharides are widely used in diverse areas such as water treatment, papermaking, chemical, food, cosmetic, and petroleum industries. The combination of cationic polysaccharides with anionic polymers can lead ...
