VPA and New Indices for Quantifying and Troubleshooting Sheet Quality

Sheet properties measured both on-line and off-line are often expressed in arrays of values called "profiles" in cross-machine direction (CD) and "trends" in machine direction (MD).  With the computing power, memory capacity, and display technology available in today's quality control and mill-wide systems, a new set of indices and two-dimensional analysis methods can be useful for better quantifying sheet quality and provide more insights for troubleshooting sheet-making processes.

Nanocellulose in the Formulation of Emulsions and Formulation-Composition Maps

Cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) and naocrystals (CNC) are high aspect nanomaterials that can form structured networks. Taking advantage of this property, I will introduce novel approaches to wood deconstruction for the development of CNF and CNC. They mainly consist of microemulsions with super-solubilizing power and ultralow interfacial tension. Further, the unique properties of fluid multiphase systems will be exploited in the synthesis of various types of emulsions.
