Infographic: Cellulose nanofibre production. What influences nanopaper strength? Can we predict nanopaper strength from intermediate characteristics?

What steps are needed to find the optimal recipe for creating a strong and sustainable nanomaterial using sorghum?

In this science illustration, I worked with Jordan Pennells, a PhD student studying ways to improve the sustainability of biomass-derived nanomaterials, to refine a graphical representation of his research workflow. This figure focuses on communicating his experimental and statistical research workflow studying the different ways (and resulting strengths) of nanopaper made from sorghum.

You can take a behind-the-scenes peek af the process below:
