Abstract:

The development of polymer nanocomposites by incorporating variable nanofillers has attracted attention of scientists, researchers and industrial sectors due to their dramatic improvement in various properties. Cellulose acetate (CA) based nanocomposites have interesting history in the field of medical applications because CA meets a wide range of biomedical implant properties. Since cellulose acetate is considered as a biodegradable, renewable, non-corrosive, non-toxic and biocompatible material, it raised up the unique advantages over many other materials. This review is designed to provide a broad overview of cellulose acetate nanocomposites in the field of medical applications and medical devices.

Keywords: Cellulose acetate, Nanocomposites, Biomaterials, Medical application, Medical devises.
