Cellulose Nanocrystal (Nanocrystalline Cellulose,CNC)

Wide: 10-20 nm, Length: 300-900 nm, Dry powder

Crystalline Nanocellulose is cellulose in crystalline form, composed of nanosized cellulose fibrils. These submicroscopic particles,

known as nanocellulose, have several features such as high strength, electro-magnetic response, large surface area, etc. There

is a wide range of CNC application in different fields. We are glad to provide Nanocrystalline Cellulose with low price and high quality.

1. Body Armor Applications

Crystal structure of nanocellulose is consisting from packed array of needle-like crystals. These crystal structures are incredibly

tough and their strength value is nearly eight times higher than stainless steel. Therefore, nanocellulose can be perfect building

material for the future body armor studies.

2. Flexible Batteries

Generally, separator parts inside batteries made up from thick and stiff material which cannot be used for bendable applications.

Instead of these materials, flexible and thin nanocellulose combined with graphene material, flexible battery as the one of the big

dream in electrical industry can be produced.

3. Flexible Screens

Nanocellulose is bendable, transparent, light and strong material therefore it can easily take place of the plastic or glass. In the future,

nanocellulose will be one of the best material for bendable screen studies.

4. Filters

Nanocellulose can be used to filter and purify many types of liquids such as purifying saltwater to be drinkable, trapping dangerous

chemicals in cigarette and filtering out blood cell during transfusion.

5. Absorbent Aerogels

When the nanocellulose are mixed with the aerogel foam, incredibly porous and adsorbent material can be obtained that could make strong

and light wound-dressing and tampons.

6. Fuel Efficient Cars

Nanocellulose can be obtained by algae and actually, this is quite cheap production method. Therefore, it will be possible to use it in serious

bulk materials. In the cars, components from stuff to interior trim will be produced from the light composites reinforced with nanocellulose.

By this way, decrease in the weight of the components will save the fuel consumption of the cars.

7. Biofuel

During the production of nanocellulose by algae, it is possible to obtain biofuel at the same time by changing the DNA of the helpful bugs.

Result of these process actually will not produce real nanocellulose material, but it will bring into useful byproduct.
