Cellulose nanoparticles as reinforcement in polymer nanocomposites

E.C. Ramires,     Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Brazil and

A. Dufresne,     Grenoble Institute of Technology – INP, France

Abstract:

This chapter describes the preparation, morphological features, and physical properties of cellulose nanocrystals and nanofibrillated cellulose and their incorporation in nanocomposite materials, including processing methods and ensuing properties. Cellulose nanoparticles have remarkable properties such as light weight, low cost, and availability of the raw material, renewability, nanoscale dimension, and unique morphology. Because of these properties, cellulose nanoparticles have been largely applied as reinforcing fillers in nanocomposite ...
