An oxidized nanocellulose is isolated as a 10-20% hydrogel with >90% crystallinity based on XRD data. The particle size is around 50-100 nm (from microcrysalline cellulose) and 100-150 nm (from wood fibers) and shows oval shapes with 2-3 aspect ratios.

Crosslinking would give oxidized cellulose and nanocellulose many unique physicochemical properties including improved aqueous, structural, mechanical, and thermal stability.
The modified nanocellulose is isolated as a white powder dried in an oven and under vacuum. It would be adhesive to hydrophobic poly(olefins) and useful as a reinforcing agent in polymer composites or an alterntive to carbon black.
Applciations: An additive for polymer composites; an alterntive to carbon black.
