Fine-Tune Cellulose Crystals in Biocomposites
Morphology change from crystalline (I. Pure Cellulose) to amorphous
(III. coagulated in water) or semi-crystalline (IV. coagulated in H2O2)
Natural materials such as cellulose or silk can be used in a multitude of applications such as electrolyte batteries, filters, drug delivery systems and scaffolds for tissue engineering....
