Abstract [en]

In the strive to find and develop sustainable bio-based materials an increased interest for nanocellulosic materials as attractive alternatives has arisen during the past decades. This can be attributed to their abundant renewability, remarkable inherent mechanical properties and their capability to be chemically modified. Cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) are commonly obtained from wood pulp fibres and prepared through mechanical, chemical and/or enzymatic treatments. However, due to their hydrophilic nature and tendency to self-aggregate, their surface chemistry need to be altered to fully utilise their inherent properties and enable their usage in conventional large-scale industrial processes.

This thesis work focuses on elucidating the fundamental aspects of the colloidal stability of highly concentrated CNF dispersions and the redispersibility of dried CNFs. Small amounts of amine-terminated poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) were used to sterically stabilise the CNFs at higher fibril concentrations and delay the dispersion-arrested state transition (Paper I). The redispersibility of dried CNFs was studied for differently charged CNFs as a function of redispersing agents such as carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), PEG and lignin (Paper II).

This thesis presents green, facile modification approaches as well as strategies for improved dispersibility and compatibility with polymer matrices. The commercially established carboxymethylation process was expanded with a subsequent functionality step, yielding a mild, versatile one-pot protocol for the preparation of bi-functional CNFs (Paper III). Further, reactive amphiphilic macromolecules with targeted side-chain functionalities were used to compatibilise the CNF surface by water-based approaches. In the first study, a macroinitiator was used for the development of a versatile, yet facile, protocol for the controlled polymerisation of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic monomers in water from the CNF surface (Paper IV). In the second study, a reactive macro-compatibiliser was used to molecularly engineer the interface between CNFs and a polymer matrix by reactive-melt processing, yielding nanocomposites with improved stiffness while maintaining the deformability (Paper V).

Abstract [en]

EDC-mediated coupling has frequently been utilized to poly(ethylene glycol) functionalize (PEGylate) cellulose-based materials, but no work has previously been reported on the direct N-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-N-ethylcarbodiimide (EDC)-mediated PEGylation of cellulose nanofibrils (CNF). Herein, we report the first study where CNF has been directly sterically stabilized with amine-terminated PEG employing N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS)-assisted EDC-coupling. This work has shown that this coupling reaction is highly sensitive to the reaction conditions and purification procedures, and hence an optimized coupling protocol was developed in order to achieve a reaction yield. Elemental analysis of the nitrogen content also showed the successful PEGylation. It was also shown that a surprisingly low PEGylation (1%) is sufficient to significantly improve the colloidal stability of the PEGylated samples, which reached dispersion-arrested-state-transitions at higher concentrations than neat CNF. The colloidal stability was preserved with increasing ionic strength, when comparably long polymer chains were grafted, targeting only 1% PEGylation.

Abstract [en]

Herein, we present a route to obtain bi-functional cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) by a one-pot approach using an already established functionalisation route, carboxymethylation, to which a subsequent functionalisation step, allylation or alkynation, has been added in the same reaction pot, eliminating the need of solvent exchange procedures. The total charge of the fibres and the total surface charge of the nanofibrils were determined by conductometric and polyelectrolyte titration, respectively. Furthermore, the allyl and alkyne functionalised cellulose were reacted with methyl 3-mercaptopropionate and azide-functionalised disperse red, respectively, to estimate the degree of functionalisation. The samples were further assessed by XPS and FT-IR. Physical characteristics were evaluated by CP/MAS C-13-NMR, XRD, AFM and DLS. This new approach of obtaining bi-functionalised CNF allows for a facile and rapid functionalisation of CNF where chemical handles can easily be attached and used for further modification of the fibrils.
