    Abstract

    Mechanically excellent native cellulose nanofibers that are cleaved from plant cell walls have been modified by functionalized few‐walled carbon nanotubes for hybrid nanofiber/nanotube aerogels. They show elastic mechanical behavior in combination with reversible electrical response under compression allowing responsive conductivity and pressure sensing. The concept combines wide availability of nanocellulosics and electrical functionality of carbon nanotubes synergistically.
