Investigation into nanocellulosics versus acacia reinforced acrylic films
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2007

Three closely related cellulosic acrylic latex films were prepared employing acacia pulp fibers, cellulose whiskers and nanocellulose balls and their respective strength properties were determined. Cellulose whisker reinforced composites had enhanced strength properties compared to the acacia pulp and nanoball composites. AFM analysis indicated that the cellulose whisker reinforced composite exhibited decreased surface roughness. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
