Self-healing cellulose nanocrystals-stabilized droplet for water collection under oil

Abstract

The removal of small water droplets from oils is imperative because oils are easy to be contaminated or deteriorated by water during transportation, storage and usage. Here, we report superhydrophobic magnetic cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) nanoparticles, which can be capable of removing tiny water droplets from oil by forming underoil particle-stabilized droplets. Those particle-stabilized droplets can be collected and moved by the magnetic force, and self-healed upon damage by external force.
