Cellulose Nanocrystal/Nanoparticles Hybrid Nanocomposites : From Preparation to Applications, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback


Cellulose Nanocrystal/Nanoparticles Hybrid Nanocomposites: From Preparation to Applications presents a broad survey of the main innovations in the field of functionalized cellulose at the nanoscale and for hybrid nanoparticles-based nanocomposites for industrial application.

The book covers the properties and applications of cellulose, including particle extraction, synthesis, functionalization of cellulose at the nanoscale, and hybrid nanoparticles and their processing and characterizations.

Readers will find this to be a single and comprehensive reference for future research on polymer-based nanocomposites. Hybrid nanocomposites based on cellulose at the nanoscale, and hybridized with other reinforcement agents represent a key advance in polymer-based materials.

Cellulose is considered the most abundant polymer on the planet and an essential renewable resource.

There is considerable research interest in the simple extraction and synthesis, nanoscale dimensions, high aspect ratio, mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of cellulose at the nanoscale and its hybridized materials.

Nanocomposites and bio-nanocomposites with hybrid reinforcements, for example, are novel materials with enhanced properties due to the integration of cellulose with other nanoparticles, and new methods have been developed to extract cellulose at the nanoscale.

The extracted cellulose shows potential applications in nanocomposites, and functionalization techniques are essential to create enhanced nanocomposites, particularly for hybrid nanoparticles.
