Summary

Nanocelluloses are promising green and renewable materials for various applications in this modern era. They possess nanostructures that make them desirable materials for advances and emerging technologies. They are renewable and sustainable with excellent mechanical properties, which are biocompatible for biological applications. In general, nanocelluloses are present either in nanostructured materials or nanofibers.


Various lignocellulosic materials can be utilized for nanocelluloses preparation through different processes. The source or the origin of lignocellulosic materials, method of isolation, and processing parameters strongly influence the morphology and physical characteristic of nanocelluloses. The latter determines the application of nanocelluloses. One of the interesting topics for the researcher for nanocelluloses production is the source of lignocellulosic materials. The unexplored lignocellulosic materials are still abundantly available, and the nanostructure of the nanocelluloses produced can provide new frontiers for a wide variety of applications.


This special issue will cover a wide variety of nanocelluloses, from production until their utilization. The topics include but not limited to:


· Nanocelluloses from various biomasses

· Modification of nanocelluloses

· Nanocelluloses for drug deliveries

· Nanocelluloses in food

· Nanocelluloses for cosmetics

· Nanocelluloses for catalysts
