Synthesis and characterization of CO2 responsive cellulose nanocrystals via RAFT-mediated graft modification

Conference Dates

May 20-25, 2018


Cellulose is the most abundant natural polymer on Earth. From cellulose, cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) can be obtained through various hydrolysis processes. This material has become the subject of much attention from the scientific community due to its outstanding mechanical, optical and physical-chemical properties, in addition to its high natural abundance, and low toxicity. There is interest in grafting different types of polymers onto CNC as their applications are limited due to their poor dispersibility in low polarity and non-polar systems.
