Nanoreinforced xylan–cellulose composite foams by freeze-casting

Author affiliations

Abstract

Structured biofoams have been prepared from the readily available renewable biopolymer xylan by employing an ice-templating technique, where the pore morphology of the material can be controlled by the solidification conditions and the molecular structure of the polysaccharide. Furthermore, reinforcement of these biodegradable foams using cellulose nanocrystals shows potential for strongly improved mechanical properties.
