Cellulose Nanocrystals reduce cold damage to reproductive buds in fruit crops

Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) are renewable nano-biomaterials that may be suitable for reducing cold damage in fruit buds to their low thermal conductivity. This study was conducted to evaluate the potential of CNC as a thermal insulation material used in protecting sweet cherry and grape reproductive buds from cold damage. The thermal conductivity measurements were conducted using the transient plane source (TPS). It was found that the average thermal conductivity for ...

Ultrathin BN nanosheets with zigzag edge: one-step chemical synthesis, applications in wastewater treatment and preparation of highly thermal-conductive BN-polymer composites

Ultrathin boron nitride nanosheets (BNNSs) were prepared at 300°C by a new variable-pressure one-step synthesis. An increase in pressure during the synthesis results in a decreased thickness for the nanosheets, which were all triangular in shape with zig-zag edges. The synthesized nanosheets exhibit high adsorption capacities for the organic dye methylene blue (MB). In addition to these properties, the BN nanosheets can be used as excellent thermal-conducting additives in BN-polymer ...
