Nanocellulose. Fundamentals towards the Development of Materials

  • ID: 4470760
  • Book
  • June 2019
  • Region: Global
  • 488 Pages

1 of 3
A thorough introduction to the structure, properties, surface modification, theory, mechanism of composites, and functional materials derived from nanocellulose. The book summarizes the three kinds of nanocellulose, cellulose nanocrystals, cellulose nanofibrils and bacterial cellulose, as well as their production, modification and novel applications. In addition, it includes the latest progress with respect to the development of a conceptual framework of nanocellulose, the relationship between structure and properties, and the construction of theory and technology.

Essential reading for specialist researchers in chemistry, materials and nanotechnology science, as well as of interest to researchers in industry and academia.
