    Abstract

    We have studied the interactions of nanofibrillar cellulose with different polysaccharides both in molecular- and macroscopic level in aqueous environment. First, basic properties affecting the interactions with polysaccharides were explored using thin films of NFC and two different high-precision adsorption techniques for ultrathin films of NFC. Furthermore, we extended the study from fundamental to practical scale by preparing films from refined and fluidized nanocellulose gels using a filtration based technique. The effect of selected polysaccharide adsorption on film properties was evaluated.
