Cellulose Nanocrystals (CNCs)



Wishlist icon Add to wishlistAdd to wishlist


Derived from cellulose fibers, cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are characterized by their rod-like shape and nanometric dimensions, typically measuring 3 to 50 nanometers in diameter and reaching several micrometers in length. Possessing a nearly perfect crystalline structure and a high surface area, cellulose nanocrystals exhibit exceptional mechanical, chemical, optical, and rheological properties, alongside being lightweight and biodegradable. These distinctive attributes make them highly adaptable for diverse applications.
