Multifunctional nanocomposites for paper conservation

Contributor(s): LU, Gang | WANG, Heyun | ZHANG, Jinping | ZHENG, DongqingMaterial type: ArticleArticleDescription: 7 pISBN: 0039-3630Subject(s): deacidification | desacidificació | desacidificación | diòxid de titani | dióxido de titanio | hidròxid de magnesi | hidroxido de magnesio | Mg(OH)2 | nanocomposite | nanocompost | nanocompuesto | papel | paper | TiO2Online resources: Accés en Línia In: Studies in Conservation 3 58 1, 23-29Abstract: Upon aging, paper documents and books become progressively damaged. Paper deacidification is a fundamental conservation intervention. In this study, we report on the use of nanoparticles of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2) associated with hydroxyethylcellulose (HEC) to inhibit acidification, photo-induced degradation, and biodeterioration of paper. With the aid of ultrasound, Mg(OH)2 nanoparticles with a narrow size distribution can be obtained through homogeneous precipitation in water. Furthermore, to demonstrate the efficacy of the nanocomposite and the performance of treated and untreated paper, photo- and thermal-induced degradation is discussed. The results show that using the controlled double-jet precipitation (CDJP) it is possible to synthesize Mg(OH)2 particles with a narrow size distribution (18‐87 nm). The nanocomposite of Mg(OH)2‐TiO2‐HEC increases the durability of paper by imparting fungal growth resistance (D = 34.6 mm), moderate alkalinity (pH = 8.4), mechanical reinforcement (from 817‐896 N/m), and UV protection. Additionally, there is a slight color difference (ΔE* = 0.8) between the treated and untreated paper. Both photodegradation and thermal degradation indicate that the paper treated with this nanocomposite (Mg(OH)2‐TiO2‐HEC) has increased stability.
