Pickering emulsions stabilized by cellulose nanocrystals grafted with thermo-responsive polymer brushes

Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, 369(1), 202–209.

By: J. Zoppe n, R. Venditti n & O. Rojas n

author keywords: Pickering emulsions; Oil-in-water emulsions; Cellulose nanoparticles; Cellulose nanocrystals; Thermo-responsive emulsions; Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide); LCST; Grafts; Surface-initiated single-electron transfer; living radical polymerization
MeSH headings : Acrylic Resins / chemistry; Cellulose / chemistry; Emulsions / chemistry; Nanoparticles / chemistry; Nanoparticles / ultrastructure; Polymers / chemistry; Temperature
TL;DR: Cellulose nanocrystals from ramie fibers are studied as stabilizers of oil-in-water emulsions and the effect of temperature can be counterbalanced with the addition of salt which is explained by the reduction of electrostatic and steric interactions of poly(NIPAM)-g-CNCs at the oil-water interface.
