What is it about?
Biomimetic, stimuli-responsive polymer nanocomposites based on a hydrophobic styrene–butadiene rubber (SBR) matrix and rigid, rod-like cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) isolated from cotton were prepared by three different approaches, and their properties were studied and related to the composition, processing history, and exposure to water as a stimulus.
