This work compiles a revision of the more relevant work done on the field of nanocrystalline cellulose (CNC). Including manufacture methods and a variety of material sources for its production, CNC properties and their effect on selected applications are presented. Several approaches on CNC surface modification are discussed, as a tool towards enhanced performance in relevant applications. Finally, self-assembly of CNC behaviour is discussed, together with its implications on rheology and stability of CNC dispersions, as well as optical properties.
