Nanocellulose hybrid materials
Hybrid materials are composites of two or more constituents with dimensions at nanoscale or molecular level. The combined materials can have extraordinary properties. In nature, bone and wood are examples of hybrid materials. All plants contain the nanoscaled structure cellulose that gives them strength and stiffness. We use various methods to extract nanocelluloses from plants and get a range of different nanocelluloses with varying properties. In this project, we explore the possibilities of utilizing nanocelluloses in manmade hybrid materials.
