Up to date, I have published papers on the topic of nanocellulose and cellulose nanocrystals. My research interested are more in defining innovative applications, from the technological point of view, for nanocelluloses, rather than working on the nanocellulose extraction and production.
Here is a list of open access materials that I have produced so far, also with the collaboration of other excellent Italian researchers!
1. “Nanocarta di cellulosa: proprietà e prospettive“, by Alessandra Operamolla. A paper in Italian, published by the Italian Chemical Society, now available for free at the following link.
2. “SolarLeaf: Celle Solari Organiche Biodegradabili Supportate su Cellulosa” , by Alessandra Operamolla. A summary of the research project SolarLeaf, published in Italian, on pages 73-79 of the book “FutureInResearch – Un volano per l’Innovazione”, oublished by the University of Bari Aldo Moro, available at the following link.
3. “Recent Advances on Renewable and Biodegradable Cellulose Nanopaper Substrates for Transparent Light-Harvesting Devices: Interaction with Humid Environment”, by Alessandra Operamolla, a review published on the International Journal of Photoenergy in 2019, available at the following link.
4. “Improving 2D-organization of fullerene Langmuir-Schäfer thin films by interaction with cellulose nanocrystals”, by Shadi Sawalha, Francesco Milano, Maria Rachele Guascito, Simona Bettini, Livia Giotta,* Alessandra Operamolla,* Tatiana Da Ros, Maurizio Prato, Ludovico Valli, a research article published on Carbon in 2020 (vol. 167, pages 906-917), made available for free via this link until September 5th 2020.
