Functionalized nanocellulose particles for printed electronics

Project description 

The aim of the project is to develop a cellulose-based redox active material suita­ble for printed electronic components. Incorporation of redox functionality into fabricated nanocellulose particles (< 100 μm) with high strength and extensive charge and accessible surface area is investigated. The LbL coating technique pro­vides one possible way of functionalizing the particles by adsorption of radical carrying redox active polymers into the porous particles. Direct covalent attach­ment of radical carrying groups to the cellulose surface is also investigated.

The properties of the redox-functionalized particles and their usability in manu­facturing printed electrical components are studied.
