Expandable cellulose capsules

Project description

The aim of the project is to create a fundamental understanding of the formation of the capsules and how to modify the cellulose to allow for an expansion without breaking the capsule wall. This work will focus also on alternative ways of forming the capsules in order to fill them with a liquid that can expand when exposed to the same stimulus as used to allow for an expansion of the cellulose. The project will be implemented in close cooperation with industrial partners Expancel AB, Cellutech AB and Pulpaper Machinery AB.
