Toxicity of Cellulose Nanocrystals: A Review
Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are a biobased nanomaterial attracting increasing interest for a range of potential applications. This article reviews the current literature on the pulmonary, oral, dermal, and cytotoxicity ...
Valorization of hemicellulose hydrolyzates into eco-friendly surfactants
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2018-03-18)
CELL 256: Role of dispersion and polar interactions in the adsorption of cellulases onto lignin
Residual lignin in pretreated biomass hinders its enzymatic hydrolysis. Nonionic surfactants are known to have beneficial effects on the enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass but their mechanisms of action at the ...
Folic Acid-Conjugated Cellulose Nanocrystals Show High Folate-Receptor Binding Affinity and Uptake by KB and Breast Cancer Cells
(American Chemical Society, 2018-10-24)
The study evaluates cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) as nanocarriers for targeted, intracellular delivery of molecular agents. CNCs were labeled with fluorescein-5′-isothiocyanate as an imaging agent and conjugated to folic ...
Cytotoxicity and Cellular Uptake of Cellulose Nanocrystals
There is growing evidence that filamentous nanoparticles offer advantages over spherical ones in drug delivery applications. The purpose of this study was to assess the potential of rod-like, plant-derived cellulose ...
