London, UK (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
Nanocellulose is being developed for use in applications ranging from scaffolds in tissue engineering, artificial skin and cartilage, wound healing and vessel substitutes to biodegradable food packaging. Applications in polymer reinforcement and anti-microbial films will be hitting the market soon. Despite being the most available natural polymer on earth, it is only recently that cellulose has gained prominence as a nanostructured material, in the form of cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and micro/nanofibrillar cellulose (MFC/NFC).
New market research report "Nanocellulose: A Technology and Market Study" elaborated by Future Markets has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
