Description: Cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs), which are generated from abundant, environmentally friendly natural plant resources, display numerous interesting properties such as outstanding mechanical strength, negligible light scattering, and low thermal expansion (Zimmermann et al., 2010). These nanofibers are usually created by mechanical fibrillation or chemical oxidation of pulp fibers. CNFs have previously been utilized in a broad range of fields, such as special printing, package, medical carriers, filtration, polymeric reinforcement, energy storage, and electronics or display substrates (Siró and Plackett, 2010).
Keywords: cellulose nanofibrils, enzymatic hydrolysis, mechanical properties, cellulose nanocrystals
