AEROGELS 2018 – Cellulose aero/xerogels for moisture sorption

In everyday life, the humidity of the air and thus the moisture content of matters have a profound influence on our comfort and the ability to utilise materials. Thus, in NanoHybrids, the development of novel biobased aerogels for moisture absorption has been one of the objectives. The aim is to produce biobased aerogels with high […]
