Properties of Cellulose-based Biodegradable Material

Properties of Cellulose-based Biodegradable MaterialCellulose (Wikipedia)

Cellulose is by far the most abundant renewable compound obtained from the biosphere and can be obtained from plants, algae, tunicates, and some bacteria. Due to a large number of hydrogen bonds between cellulose chains, cellulose is insoluble in common organic solvents, even in water. In addition, unmodified cellulose has poor adsorption capacity and poor mechanical properties. However, cellulose contains a large number of polar groups, which can be easily modified physically or chemically. Modified and functionalized by a variety of available appropriate techniques, cellulose-based biodegradable materials have received increasing attention.

Cellulose-based biodegradable materials have attracted considerable attention for their applications in the biomedical field due to their suitable physical and mechanical properties. In addition, these materials also have the characteristics of biocompatibility, biodegradability, low cytotoxicity, and adjustable porosity and interconnection, and are considered cost-effective prospective materials for biomedical applications.
