Intake sheet for cellulose functionalisation case
First part of the midway results table of the cellulose functionalisation case
Technology readiness radar for the cellulose functionalisation case
One of the final results "Hydroxypropyl (methyl)cellulose" of the cellulose functionalisation case
This project had the aim to list potential methods to improve the properties of cellulose by either biochemical, chemical or mechanical modification of cellulose polymers. By improving the cellulose fibers, new functionalities could potentially be achieved that can improve the barrier properties or structural integrity of cellulose-based packaging materials. 41 approaches where found, of which 10 were outlined in further detail.
During the intake meeting we together define the scope of your challenge. What functionality does your chemical compound need to have? What requirements is it subject to?
The aim of this first scouting phase will be on finding all compound categories out there and providing information about these chemicals. Examples will be given on specific compounds within each category.
In the midway meeting, we will discuss which results are relevant. You can then select one or more categories for the deep dive scouting phase.
This second scouting phase will consist of elaborating the information of the categories and finding all the relevant chemicals within this category. Specifications, TRL, and suppliers or partners can be found on a compound or category level, depending on the topic and your need.
Findest's goal is to provide you a tailored overview of the types of chemicals that are truly interesting for your challenge. On the IGOR^AI platform you can rapidly select, evaluate and share the results with the whole team.
