Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

Recently, a new member of the nanocellulose family was introduced, a cellulose II gel consisting of nanostructured and spherical particles. In this study, we compared two different drying techniques to obtain highly porous powders from this gel with preserved meso- and macroporous nanostructure: first, freeze-drying after solvent exchange to tBuOH and second, supercritical drying of the respective EtOH alcogel. The approaches yielded aerogel powders with surface areas of 298 and 423 m2/g, respectively. Both powders are amphiphilic and possess energetically heterogeneous surfaces with dominating dispersive term of the surface energy in the range of 5052 mJ/m2, as determined by a combination of physicochemical surface characterization techniques, such as iGC, BET and SEM. Despite the lower surface area, the cheaper and more widespread method, freeze-drying, yields a more polar and reactive cryogel.
