Highly scattering white cellulose material

Ref No: Vig-3383-16

Dr Silvia Vignolini and her team in the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge and her collaborators at the University of Aalto, have developed a process for producing bright white (highly scattering) films with nano-fibrillated cellulose. This is expected to enable a new generation of pigment-free, biodegradable, white material as a potential replacement for titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.


Key Benefits

  • The material is biodegradable, ideal for food colouring and cosmetics
  • Potential replacement for titanium dioxide, which is being phased out
  • Fabricated from a readily available natural material, highly suitable for upscaling
  • Completely opaque at tens of microns thick
