Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation (QCM-D) as a Way to Study Adsorption and Adsorbed Layer Characteristics of Hemicelluloses and Other Macromolecules on Thin Cellulose Films: A Review
Keywords:Quartz crystal microbalances with dissipation (QCM-D), Cellulose, Hemicellulose, Adsorption, Influencing factor
Cellulose and hemicellulose are abundant renewable resources. Thus, studying the adsorption mechanism of hemicellulose adsorption onto cellulose will contribute to further understanding of the fiber network, promote the development of new materials, and improve the utilization rate of resources. Quartz crystal microbalance with dissipative (QCM-D) is a research tool that can monitor quality changes at nanograms level; it is often used in the field of adsorption. Starting from the interaction between cellulose and hemicellulose, this paper outlines research on the principle, influencing factors, and kinetics of hemicellulose adsorption onto cellulose by QCM-D and expounds the research methods and means in the field of adsorption of similar biomass that can be used for reference. It provides a reference for further study of adsorption mechanism.
