Nanocrystalline Cellulose Market – Snapshot
Nanocrystalline cellulose is the elementary building block of natural cellulose available in the dimension of 10-9 meter (nanometer). It is a naturally occurring material isolated from cellulose of wood and various plants. Demand for nanocrystalline cellulose materials from various end-user industries such as paper processing, composites manufacturing and biomedical are on the rise due to the superior properties such as high tensile strength, low density, and high degree of thermal stability. High surface area is a key property of nanocrystalline cellulose which helps it to have powerful interaction with the surrounding species such as water, organic compounds, and polymeric compounds.
