Nanocellulose research and applications
Updated: 2013-04-09 | Print
Nanocellulose is a wonderful material, which is synthesized naturally in wood and can form the basis of several potential applications.
During the past few decades, nanotechnology has had tremendous advances in several areas of research and development. Every week we are witnesses to hundreds of articles and scientific publications reporting new pathways for nanoparticle/nanofiber production, modification and use in modern and high-tech applications. In this respect, the pulp and paper industry has not been absent of this development, which has motivated massive research about nanocellulose.
