Development of mechanical properties of regenerated cellulose beads during drying as investigated by atomic force microscopy

Author affiliations

Abstract

The mechanical properties as well as the size changes of swollen cellulose beads were measured in situ during solvent evaporation by atomic force microscopy (AFM) indentation measurement combined with optical microscopy. Three factors are proposed to govern the mechanical properties of the cellulose beads in the swollen state and during drying: (i) the cellulose concentration, (ii) the interaction between the cellulose entities, (iii) the heterogeneity of the network structure within the cellulose beads.
