129 Handbook of Nanocellulose and Cellulose Nanocomposites 2 Volume Set Hanieh Kargarzadeh, Ishak Ahmad, Sabu Thomas & Alain Dufresne Mahatma Gandhi University An up-to-date and comprehensive overview summarizing recent achievements, the state of the art, and trends in research into cellulose nanocomposites. Following an introduction, this ready references discusses the characterization as well surface modification of cellulose nanocomposites before going into details of the manufacturing and the self-assembly of such compounds. After a description of various alternatives, including thermoplastic, thermosetting, rubber, and fully green cellulose nanocomposites, the book continues with their mechanic and thermal properties, as well as crystallization and scattering behavior. A summary of spectroscopic and water sorption properties precedes a look at the ageing and life cycle assessment of these nanocomposites. With its coverage of a wide variety of materials, important characterization tools and resulting applications, this is an essential reference for beginners as well as experienced researchers.
