Formation of shear thinning gels from partially oxidised cellulose nanofibrils

Author affiliations

Abstract

Partially C(6) oxidised, dispersed cellulose nanofibres form shear thinning gels in the presence of moderate amounts of simple salts or surfactants providing a novel method to structure aqueous formulations, which may be of use in a substantial number of applications where it is desirable to enhance the viscosity of formulated materials using components from a renewable, sustainable source.
