Functional nanoparticles obtained from cellulose: engineering the shape and size of 6-carboxycellulose

Author affiliations

Abstract

Agricultural residue derived cellulose and cotton cellulose were used to synthesize quasi-spherical nanoparticles of 6-carboxycellulose having diameter 25–35 nm. This provides a new range of functionalized nanostructured celluloses with increased versatility and applications. The nanoparticles were efficient in stabilizing carbon nanotube dispersions and were effective anti-microbial agents against E. coli.
