New rapid and scalable method of cellulose modification of chemical particle properties.
There is a growing interest in the development of nano-composites consisting of organic polymers and various nano-materials. In general, composites have been used extensively in civil infrastructure applications and their use continues to grow in the new and existing structures via retrofits, rehabilitations, and repairs. The use of nano-materials is revolutionizing the properties of the existing composites.
Dr. Orlov Alexander, Associate Professor at Stony Brook University invented a fast and scalable method of cellulose modification where a fast surface reaction can be performed while nano-particles remain well separated in a laminar flow of gases. The modification of the chemical particle properties, which can be subsequently tuned by changing the residence time and reaction conditions, will be beneficial for the subsequent incorporation tuned by changing the residence time and reaction conditions, will be beneficial for the subsequent incorporation of cellulose into various polymer matrices to fambriacate nanocomposites.
