comparison of Microfibrillated cellulose and Nanocrystalline cellulose

By Inger Mari Nygård Vold 27. December 2016

Cellulose is a renewable and sustainable material and is one of the most abundant natural polymers on earth. Traditionally, cellulose materials have been sold either as a material at the fiber level or as modified celluloses at the molecular level. Currently, there is a high interest in utilizing the full potential of cellulose, and development and commercialization of cellulose materials possessing other structural dimensions are continuously progressing. Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) has been used commercially for decades. In recent years, the scientific work has focused mainly on two different types of celluloses; microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) and nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC).

In a previous blog post, I was focusing on the differences and similarities between MFC and MCC. In this continuation blog post, I will give you a comparison of MFC and Nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC).

In this blog post, I will give you some insight into the differences and similarities between two of these cellulose families; Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) and Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC). In a continuation blog post coming next week, I will compare MFC and Nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC).
