Cellulose Nanoparticles: Synthesis and Manufacturing
Cellulose nanoparticles (CNP) are a class of bio-based nanoscale materials, which are of interest due to their unique structural features and properties such as biocompatibility, biodegradability, and renewability. They are promising candidates for applications including in biomedicine, pharmaceuticals, electronics, barrier films, nanocomposites, membranes, and supercapacitors. New resources, extraction procedures and treatments are currently under development to satisfy increasing demands for cost-effective and sustainable methods of manufacturing new types of cellulose nanoparticle-based materials on an industrial scale. Cellulose Nanoparticles: Synthesis and Manufacturing concentrates on advanced high performance cellulose nanocomposites. Chapters cover the synthesis of advanced materials, manufacturing, and applications of cellulose nanocrystals and nanofibrils. Together with Volume 1, these books form a useful reference work for graduate students and researchers in chemistry, materials science, nanoscience and green nanotechnology.
