Nanoreinforced xylan-cellulose composite foams by freeze-casting
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2012

Structured biofoams have been prepared from the readily available renewable biopolymer xylan by employing an ice-templating technique, where the pore morphology of the material can be controlled by the solidification conditions and the molecular structure of the polysaccharide. Furthermore, reinforcement of these biodegradable foams using cellulose nanocrystals shows potential for strongly improved mechanical properties.
