Abstract Cellulose is an abundant and biodegradable natural material that is not derived from petroleum. With the growing demand for high-performance materials, the interest in using nanocelluloses in different areas has increased. Nanofibrillated celluloses (NFCs) are result from mechanical processing of cellulose fibers, with or without chemical pretreatments. Characteristics such as large surface area, hydroxyl groups on their surface, high mechanical strength, and high length/width ratio give NFC beneficial effects when incorporated into cement composites. This work presents a review of researches carried out in recent years in the area of cement systems incorporating NFC. The characteristics of these nanocelluloses, their production, and the effect that the nanomaterial has on the behavior of cement composites are presented. It was observed that the addition of NFC brings relevant increases in mechanical properties. The maximum increments reported in the literature were 43% in compressive strength, 106% in flexural strength, 5% in modulus of elasticity, 71% in flexural modulus, 50% in fracture energy, and 192% in toughness. Furthermore, NFC has the potential to enhance the durability of the cement composites, since the nanoadmixtures provided cement matrices with lower sulfate penetration (~50%), greater thermal resistance (no microcracks at 250 °C), and greater resistance to accelerated aging (an increase of 20% in flexural strength and 25% in modulus of elasticity after 200 wet-dry cycles).

Abstract Grapefruit peel nanofibrillated cellulose (GNFC) was used as fat substitute in ice cream. GNFC was characterized by TEM, SEM, and XRD. The effects of GNFC on textural profiles, rheological properties, melting resistance, sensory properties, microstructure, and gross energy (GE) of ice cream were investigated. The results showed that GNFC was short rod-shaped crystal. Ice cream added with GNFC exhibited elastic-dominated behavior and better textural properties. The sensory evaluation sco...

Abstract Controlled pesticide release in response to environmental stimuli by encapsulating pesticide in carrier is a feasible approach to improve the effective utilization rate. Here, a temperature-responsive release formulation (CPF@CM) was prepared by encapsulating chlorpyrifos (CPF) in a microcapsule via interfacial polymerization in n-hexadecane/water emulsion. The microcapsule was consisted of nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) as the shell wall material and isophorone diisocyanate (IPDI) as ...

Abstract Nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC), a promising bio-based nanomaterial, has received much attention in the field of coating preparation due to its unique properties. Herein, NFC was prepared from microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) via high-pressure homogenization process and deliberately employed as coating agent to enhance the properties of paper coatings and coated paper. The results demonstrated that the obtained paper coatings exhibited strong NFC concentration dependence on rheological ...

Microfibrillated cellulose films have been gathering considerable attention due to their high mechanical properties and cheap cost. Additionally, it is possible to include compounds within the fibrillated structure in order to confer desirable properties. Ilex paraguariensis A. St.-Hil, yerba mate leaf extract has been reported to possess a high quantity of caffeoylquinic acids that may be beneficial for other applications instead of its conventional use as a hot beverage. Therefore, we investig...

Abstract Construction activities are progressing rapidly across the globe due to the demand for concrete and its constituent materials especially fine and coarse aggregates. The large quantity of concrete production is causing an acute shortage of natural sand. Nowadays researchers are finding ways by exploring better alternatives of river sand in the form of manufactured sand as well as crushed rock sand. Sandstone cutting waste are sand-sized grains of mineral obtained from sedimentary rocks. ...

Abstract For its superior mechanical strength and durability aspects, ultra–high performance concrete (UHPC) offers an advanced construction solution for resilient concrete infrastructures. Nonetheless, one major handicap of UHPC is autogenous shrinkage, particularly for insitu casting. This study proposes nanoengineering using nanoscale cellulose filaments as a novel approach for controlling autogenous shrinkage of UHPC. A typical UHPC mix was redesigned by incorporating cellulose filaments at ...

Abstract Steel slag (SS) was used to replace natural aggregate (NA) in pervious concretes (PCs) and important properties of the PCs were investigated in this work. The replacement levels of SS were 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%, respectively. The properties of the PCs, including the compressive strength, the splitting tensile strength and the flexural strength as well as the bulk density, the connected porosity and the water permeability coefficient, were studied. Additionally, the carbonation resistan...
