Composites of nanocellulose and fibrous clay with special properties

CSIC scientists have obtained a material which combines nanocellulose and fibrous clays. It can be specifically modified for different applications. Similar to paper, the material can be used to obtain special papers such as bank notes, antimicrobial packages for food products, conductor or magnetic papers.

Solid blue-emitter in the UV-visible

At the CSIC’s Instituto de Ciencia de Materials de Madrid, scientists have obtained a new xerogel (a solid formed from a gel by drying, eliminating the solvent) which can be used as a blue emitter in solid state. It may be applicable to the fabrication of optoelectronics devices, fluorescent sensors, and organic light emitting diodes.
