Plants contain the most abundant natural polymer cellulose in nature. Plants have a multilayered structure, made up of cells at the microscopic level. The main material of cells exists in the cell wall, mainly in the form of cellulose nanofilament-matrix composite structure, which plays a crucial role in the performance and function of plants. Nanocellulose, as a kind of environmentally friendly renewable polymer material, has great application potential and ecological benefits. In this chapter, the structural properties and preparation methods of nanocellulose are introduced, and the characterization methods and modification methods of nanocellulose are summarized. Finally, the design and construction of new nanocellulose materials in the future are prospected.

Keywords: Characterization, Cell wall, Functional material, Material construction strategy, Mechanical defibration, Nanocellulose, Preparation, Structure.
