Review article on nanocellulose in packaging applications

16 March 2017

Researchers at North Carolina State University US have published a review article on nanocellulose in packaging applications. This article was prompted by a remarkable growth in the number of scientific publications dealing with the use of nanocellulose to enhance the barrier properties and other performance attributes of new generations of packaging.
While various high-end applications may be achieved by chemical derivatization or grafting of the nanocellulose, the current trends in research suggest that high-volume implementation will likely incorporate water-based formulations, which may include water-based dispersions or emulsions. The article is published in BioResources.
