Ongoring modification of cellulose nanofibres and their potential applications, Seminar, 15-16 October 2015, Madrid, Spain

Ongoing modification of cellulose nanofibres and their potential applications
The aim of the seminar was to offer an overview of the current chemical functionalisation suitable for cellulose nanofibers, in view to its application in specific potential sectors. Functionalisation of non-modified cellulose nanofibres is a necessary step to increase the applicability.
