- ... A series of four cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) suspensions were prepared from bleached softwood kraft pulp using different conditions of sulfuric acid hydrolysis. The CNCs were identical in size (95 nm in length × 5 nm in width) but had different surface charges corresponding to the harshness of the hydrolysis conditions. Consequently, it was possible to isolate the effects of surface charge on the ...
