Processing of Polymer-based Nanocomposites - Introduction | Suprakas Sinha Ray | SpringerIn recent years, several studies have been performed using nanocellulose as a component in polymeric nanocomposites. The interest in studying cellulose-based nanocomposite is due to the abundance, renewable nature, and outstanding mechanical properties of this nanoparticle. However, obtaining nanocomposites based on nanocellulose, with optimal properties, requires good nanoparticle dispersion in the polymeric matrix. The chemical compatibility between nanofiller and polymer plays a major role in both the dispersion of particles in the matrix and the adhesion between these phases. The aim of this review is to present the fundamental concepts about nanocellulose, such as its structural aspects, production methods and current trends in classification, and the main aspects about cellulose-based nanocomposites, including the progress that has been reached in relation to their compatibilization, production, final properties and potential applications. The number of research studies on polymeric materials from renewable natural sources has been growing markedly in recent years .
Cellulose nanocomposites : processing, characterization, and properties
MFCs have been utilized as thickening agents in the food and cosmetics industries? The results showed that was possible to obtain anx cellulose using the purely physical method of high-intensity ultrasonication. Different literatures studied the thermal behavior as well as cure in the layered silicate nanocomposites [36,59,-]. On the other hand, Angellier et al.TPO nanocomposites: application for automotive parts : a M-Van step Assist: 1st commercial launch and b impala: 2nd nanocomposite application. Lung Cell Mol. These simulation results agree with the AFM observations . Schulte, K?
Some of the most common surface chemical modifications of cellulose nanoparticles are summarized in Figure 4. This kind of fracture has an advantage for biodegradation because they are easy to mix with compost and create a larger surface area for further attack by microorganisms, and it should be noted here that the extent of fragmentation is directly related to the nature of organoclay used for nanocomposites preparation. One factor that can characterizatuon this distance is the shape of reinforcements. Processing and Morphology.

However, many biopolymers have been used in the preparation of nanocomposites . In order to improve their properties, the galleries of EG can be easily intercalated through physical adsorption . They took into account the quantitative understanding of the mechanical behavior of a single clay layer in a completely exfoliated state. As it has a high expansion ratio applicagions, the CNC content did not exert any effect on this parameter.
