6b) at all because of the strong interfibrillar hydrogen bonding. While the powder was completely fibrillated (Fig. 6 FE-SEM images of (a) commercially available dry chitin powder, (b) chitin fibers after one pass through the grinder without acetic acid, and (c) passing through grinder with acetic acid. The length of the scale bar in (a) is 1000 nm and (b) and (c) 300 nm, respectively. 9% and the slurry obtained was a gel phase. Such fine NFs of chitin were obtained because of electrostatic repulsion resulting from the cationic charge on the chitin fiber surface that overcame the interfiber hydrogen bonding.
