Abstract:The combination of organic and inorganic materials provides the opportunity to develop new materials that not only retain the inherent properties of their component precursors but may also exhibit new properties due to the synergistic interaction of the precursors. Of particular interest is the development of new hybrid materials comprising cellulose fibre substrates that have been functionalized by magnetic and photoluminescent nanoparticles or conducting polymers, and exploring their potential applications. Examples of such nanoparticles are the magnetic iron oxides, the photoluminescent zinc sulfide, and the conducting polymer polypyrrole. Such developments and applications include magnetic and photoluminescent paper for the upcoming ‘smart packaging’ industry, security labels, tuneable electromagnetic shielding papers.
