Journal of Polymer and Biopolymer Physics Chemistry
Nano-Cellulose has been a centre of attraction of researchers due to its unique properties in the field of Health-Care-Systems. In the recent times, nano-cellulose has been used as a nano-reinforcement in different polymeric biomaterials to prepare functional bio-nanocomposites for tissue engineering and drug-delivery systems. At nano-scale, cellulose crystals or particles have shown a great potential and have emerged as a novel biomaterial with low cost, high surface area, high aspect-ratio, exceptional physical, chemical, and mechanical properties (high specific strength and modulus). These nano-reinforcements show significant load-bearing capacity (nano-strength) into the fabricated nanocomposites as compared to other reinforcing fillers.
This special issue focuses on recent developments in nano-cellulose reinforced bio-nanocomposites in the field of Health-Care-Systems.
It covers all aspects of nano-cellulose based research activities, from extraction, processing, modification, fabrication, characterization to potential application. It particularly encourages a multidisciplinary research field including chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering sciences to investigate the potential of these nano-cellulose for the fabrication of desired products.
We invite researchers to contribute original research papers and review papers on nano-cellulose, including extraction, modification and, characterization followed by potential application such as porous scaffolds, hydrogels, beads, nanocomposites, electrospun fibres are encouraged to submit to this journal.
