Self-assembly and the creation of new materials for the forest products industry
2010 (English)In: PULPAPER 2010 Conference - Implementing the New Rise: Technological Breakthroughs - Nanotechnology, 2010, 1-10 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Self-assembly is a very important mechanism for the evolution of life on Earth, and we are just beginning to understand and harness self-assembly in recipes for man-made materials. Of particular interest to the forest products industry are self-assembled band-gap materials (structured pigments that can create new optical functionalities), new nanoporous pigments that can provide highly selective absorption properties, nanoparticles that can provide reinforcement, enhanced barrier properties, and electro/optical/bio functionalities, and various metallic-organic hybrids that can facilitate bio assay or controlled storage and release of liquids and gasses.
