What is it about?
In this study, sugarcane bagasse was pretreated with acid-catalyzed alcohols, i.e., ethanol (AE), ethylene glycol (AEG) and glycerol (AG) to prepare pulps for producing lignin-containing cellulose nanofibrils (LCNF) with tailored properties, such as hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity and dispersion stability.

Why is it important?
Nanocellulose is an attractive bio-additive for many applications, especially in synthesis of re-enforced polymer composites as packaging and structural materials and development of Pickering emulsions for delivering nutraceuticals and drugs
