Abstract
The present work describes a new method for the surface functionalization of cellulosic sheets, overcoming the limitations of the traditional treatments, which are usually performed using fibrous suspensions. The method consists in obtaining a product (post-enzymatic) derived from an enzymatic reaction using Laccase and a compound showing a specific property. The obtained product, which has aqueous consistency, is then applied to the surface of a finished paper sheet (or cellulosic substrate) by...
