Top experts review the latest patents they read and the latest papers
and lectures they attended at conferences; they then make a selection
of the most promising technologies and summarize in a few lines what
the substance you should take away with you.
A novel class of waterborne polyurethane (WPU)/cellulose nanocrystal (CN) materials via an in situ polymerization strategy have been successfully synthesized. The experimental conditions were chosen to allow part of the pre-synthesized WPU chains to graft onto the surface of cellulose nanocrystals (CNs). Subsequently, the nanocomposites were processed by typical casting and evaporation...
