Adsorption of xyloglucan and cellulose nanocrystals on natural fibres for the creation of hierarchically structured fibres

Abstract : Green treatment of natural fibres is a major issue in paper, textile and biocomposites industries to design innovative and eco-friendly products. In this work, hierarchical structuring of flax woven fabrics by the adsorption of xyloglucan (XG) and cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) is studied. Indeed, CNC have high mechanical properties, high specific surface area and great potential for functionalization. The adsorption of XG and CNC has been investigated in terms of localization by confocal and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and quantification through adsorption isotherms. Adhesion force measurements have also been performed by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). XG and CNC are homogeneously adsorbed on flax fabric and adsorption isotherms reach plateau values around 20 mg /gfibres for both. The pre-adsorption of XG on flax fabric influences the amount of adsorbed CNC in the high concentrations and also creates entanglements and strong interactions between XG and CNC with the formation of an extensible network.
