Environmental ageing studies of chemically modified micro and nanofibril phenol formaldehyde composites
Cellulose micro and nano fibrils were extracted from banana macro fibres and chemically modified using sodium hydroxide, formic acid, 3-methacryloxy propyltrimethoxy silane. These untreated and chemically treated fibrils ...
ZnO nanostructures directly grown on paper and bacterial cellulose substrates without any surface modification layer
In this report, hierarchical ZnO nano- and microstructures were directly grown for the first time on a bacterial cellulose substrate and on two additional different papers by hydrothermal synthesis without any surface ...
Physical and chemical changes in juvenile and mature woods of Pinus elliottii var. elliottii by thermal modification
This study is aimed at evaluating the effect of thermal treatment on the physical and chemical properties of juvenile and mature wood from Pinus elliottii. Boards were taken from 35-year-old P. elliottii var. elliottii ...
Functional modifications by physical treatments of dietary fibers used in food formulations
Chemical modifications of polysaccharides for food and non-food applications have been practiced for years to improve their functional properties. Recent concerns from the public to reduce the use and exposure of chemicals ...
Modifying electronic properties of ICBA through chemical substitutions for solar cell applications
Fullerene derivatives are the most widely used type of acceptor material in the organic solar cells (OSCs) active layers, but there are still some problems to be overcome, such as increased solubility and adjustment of the ...
Synthesis of PTSH-modified CeO2 nanoparticles: Effect of the modifier on structure, optical properties, and dispersibility
CeO2 nanoparticles were synthesized by the precipitation method and modified with para-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSH), either in situ or post-synthesis. The presence of PTSH in the samples was confirmed by FTIR. PXRD and ...
