Cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) coatings with controlled anisotropy as high-performance gas barrier films

Dr. Jeffrey Youngblood and a team of Purdue researchers, have developed a new manufacturing process that uses cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) to provide advanced barrier coatings for food packaging. This can improve food packaging and keep groceries fresh longer. ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, 2019. Learn more: bit.ly/YoungbloodACSAMI
