TALENT: Tailoring Cellulose Surfaces by Controlled Polymerization Methods

TALENT: Tailoring Cellulose Surfaces by Controlled Polymerization Methods

Anna Carlmark

To expand the utilization of cellulose beyond its traditional uses, it is necessary to modify the surface of the fibers. This paper summarizes the modification of cellulose by controlled polymerization methods such as ATRP, RAFT, ROP, and ROMP. The combination of the excellent properties of cellulose with functional polymers creates new materials of great potential in advanced material applications.
