Nanocellulose is a safe, non-toxic biodegradable cellulose nanomaterial. Due to lightweight and mechanical strength, it has been considered as a reinforcing agent for biocomposites. It is also a liquid crystalline material able to self-assemble to form densely packed thin films. Thin films of nanocellulose is an effective barrier to oxygen and water vapor. Innotech Materials has developed an innovative technology of producing a hydrophobic nanocellulose using catalytic oxidation of cellulose derivatives. It is isolated as white powders, soluble to organic solvents such acetone and chloroform, and slowly melts at 200 °C to form pale yellow gels. Thin films prepared from solvent casting is hydrophobic and impervious to water. Thus, it would be a suitable replacement of plastics for zero waste, bioplastic packaging.
