Cellulose is the main building block of trees and plants. Its nanocrystals are organized in a structure of strongly ordered crystalline particles which have been engineered by nature to be inherently strong.
Cellulose NanoCrystals (CNC) have several notable chemical, optical and electrical properties:
- Their size, shape and charge lead to unique behavior in solutions.
- The high chemical reactivity of the surface makes CNC customizable for various applications.
- Their heat stability allows high temperature applications
