Article
Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) with high specific surface area, crystallinity, aspect ratio with unique rod-like shapes, elastic modulus and tensile strength are an excellent additive which can be used for the preparation of unique polymer/nanoparticle fiber composites from polymer solutions by electrospinning. Research on electrospinning as a techn...
Article
Nitrobenzene (CNC‐1), trifluoromethyl benzene (CNC‐2) modified and polystyrene‐grafted (CNC‐g) cellulose nanocrystals in polystyrene (PS)‐N,N dimethylformamide (DMF) solutions were electrospun and collected as stretched and aligned fibers on a rotating drum. Scanning electron microscope pictures showed significant alignment in the case of unmodifie...
Article
This study investigated the electrospinning of polystyrene solutions using added unmodified and modified (with grafted nitrobenzene and trifluoromethyl benzene functionalities and polystyrene brushes) cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs). A strong correlation existed between the formation of beads on the fibers and the degree of dispersion of CNC particle...
