Nanocellulose is a non-toxic, biodegradable cellulosic nanomaterial. It has several noble properties including lightweight, mechanical strength, liquid crystalline phases, and biocompatibility. Thus, nanocellulose has many potential applications in automotive, aerospace, food packagining, 3-D printing resins, and others. However, current technologies of nanocellulose including cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) have several drawbacks: high production cost, caustic and toxic processes, and poor adhesion to polymeric materials.
Innotech Materials has recently developed energy and cost-effective catalytic processes to produce oxidized nanocellulose derivatives through cellulose oxidation and cleavage. The hygroscopic nanocellulose has been further processed to enhance adhesion to hydrophobic polymer such as polypropylene through esterification or amidation. The process is environmentally friendly and produces inexpensive nanocellulose.
