In this Research Topic we invite reports on the recent developments on characterization of emerging cellulosic materials. In addition to the composition and structure of nano- and microparticle surfaces and their assemblies, interfacial interactions, transport of liquids and gases, and diffusion of water play a decisive role in the development and exploitation of the new materials. The emphasis of the contributions will therefore be on methods to characterize these properties, and how they are linked to bulk properties, such as mechanical performance, rheological behavior, interfacial compatibility, wetting and adhesion as well as porosity/density of the materials. The procedures of preparing representative samples and their characterization are equally important.

We invite researchers to contribute Original Research, Review or Mini-Review articles on the characterization methods which are applied to the study of the properties of emerging lignocellulosic materials. The materials should be based on nano- and micro-scaled or macroscopic cellulose fibers, alone or in combination with other components (e.g. lignin. hemicellulose, other synthetic or natural polymers and inorganic materials). Examples of properties of interest are, in particular, physical and chemical properties of surfaces, interfacial interactions and colloidal stability, but typically also transport of liquids and gases, diffusion, porosity/density, network structure, percolation and strength.

In this Research Topic, all articles will be subject to timely peer review and published open access for a fee of $1150 USD for Original Research and Reviews, and $525 USD for Mini-Reviews. If you need support with the fee please contact the editorial team who will invite you to apply to their fee support program.


Keywords: Cellulosic Materials, Microparticles, Nanoparticles, Surface Properties, Interfacial Interactions, Engineered Material
