Cross-Linked Poly(Methyl Vinyl Ether-Co-Maleic Acid)/Poly(Ethylene Glycol)/Nanocellulosics Foams via Directional Freezing

Nanocellulose foam.

This research from Art Ragauskas’ team is focused on cross-linked nanocelluloses, poly(methyl vinyl ether-co-maleic acid) (PMVEMA) and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) foams. The nanocellulose foams were made by direction-freezing technique which obtained aligned three-dimensional porous structures. Enhanced mechanical performance and hydrophobicity were observed on these cross-linked foams.

This research is published in the journal of Carbohydrate Polymers.
