SYNOPSIS

Cellulose, which is an abundantly available “green” material, can be derived from plant fibers and tailored for a plethora of possible uses where it can be used as a substrate or as a filler material.However, emerging technologies and product advancements necessitate the search for materials that are small, biodegradable,lightweight, and strong. Nano cellulose, which can be obtained through as mechanical and chemical production methods with tensile strength and Young's modulus of up to 0.5 and 130 GPa,respectively, proves to be the answer that they were looking for.However, the inherent hydrophilic nature of nano cellulose limited its potential widespread application. Surface modifications of nano cellulose to alter and diminish its hydrophilicity were done to address the aforementioned issues. The emerging application of nano cellulose includes biosensor, nano remediation, paper making,and automotive.
