Nano 2019 Technical Program Features New Sessions

TAPPI’s 2019 International Conference on Renewable Nanomaterials (TAPPI Nano 2019) features four entirely new sessions (with 16 presentations) as part of the technical program, thanks to a record number of submissions. These new sessions will be held on the last day of the Conference, running 3-7 June, in Chiba, Japan.

Two of these new sessions are:

Session 33: New Pathways for Nanocellulose Composites takes a look at new methods of creating nanocellulose composites. Presentations are:

Highly Thermally Stable Transparent Nanocomposites of Immiscible Polymer and Nanocelluloses Fabricated via a Pickering Emulsification Pathway – Subir Kumar Biswas, Kyoto University

Developing High Performance PA11/Cellulose Nanocomposites for Industrial‐Scale Melt Processing – Priya Venkatrama, Virginia Tech

Zero‐VOC Waterborne Acrylic Coatings: Improving Properties with Cellulose Nanocrystals – Ezgi Dogan‐Guner, Georgia Institute of Technology

Emulsion‐Templated Synthesis of Nanocellulose‐Shelled Microparticles – Shuji Fujisawa, The University of Tokyo


Session 37: Papers and Beyond, where these presentations cover everything from the use of nanomaterials in the preparation of fluorescent papers, to the creation and application of gel polymers and hydrogels.

Properties of Fluorescent Paper via Surface Coating of Cellulose Derivatives / Rare Earth Metal Ions Composites – Jun Ye, South China University of Technology

Cellulose Nanofibril (CNF) Based Gel Polymer as a Solid State Electrolyte for Lithium Ion Battery (LIB) – Hao Zhang, Tianjin University of Science and Technology

Inverse Thermoreversible Methylcellulose/Cellulose Nanocrystal Nanocomposite Hydrogel for Fiber Spinning – Ville Hynninen, Aalto University

Nanocellulose Enhanced Dialdehyde Carboxymethylcellulose Dual Responsive Self‐Repairing Hydrogel – Shiyu Fu, South China University of Technology

These are just two of the more than 30 technical sessions being held at TAPPI Nano 2019, each of which are designed to deliver cutting-edge developments in renewable nanomaterials.
