Abstract:
Optimized synthesis of new cellulose-GMA materials via radical and physical chemical activation, their chemical composition determination and derivatization quantification. Structural solid state NMR and IR ATR characterizations. Derivative screenings for possible use in filtration of pollutants and in absorption of dyes: (a) determination of the influence of the synthetic approaches on the structural properties of the derivatized cellulose materials. (b) determination of structure-properties correlations of the products to develop as active filters. (c) Rationalization and optimization of the association material-molecule-activity for materials suitable for a real industrial development.
