Method assembles nanofibers into a material stronger than spider silk

Researchers in Sweden have produced a bio-based material that is reported to surpass the strength of all known bio-based materials whether fabricated or natural, including wood and spider silk. Working with cellulose┬ánanofibers (CNF), the essential building block of wood and other plant life, the researchers report that they have overcome the difficulty in translating the … Continue reading Method assembles nanofibers into a material stronger than spider silk
