Owing to the exclusive properties of cellulose, it is widely used in several industries. With the discovery of nano-sized cellulose, various properties could be reformed, and several new applications could be achieved using this material. In this chapter, we discuss about how nanocellulose has gained importance in this modern era. We introduce the term advanced materials and elaborate it with respect to cellulose nanoparticles. Advanced materials are the next-generation materials with enhanced desirable properties, and nanocellulose is a prominent player in the huge industry of advanced materials. We finally focus on the in situ polymerization technique and its use in the preparation of advanced materials.
