Progress of cellulose-based Biomedical functional composites

Maming guo


cellulose-based Functional composites exhibit the functional characteristics, such as light, electric, magnetic functionsand catalytic properties, which have been widely applied in pulping and papermaking, fine chemical, tissue engineering, BIOmedical and other fields.cellulose-based biomedical composites are typical cellulose materials, combining the advantages of both biomass and biomaTerials, which have potential applications in bone repair and replacement, tissue engineering, drug delivery, Gene CarrieR, protein adsorption, and other fields.In this review, we introduced three synthetic methods to composites including hydrothermal (Solvothermal) method, MicrowAve method and ultrasonic method, discussed the advantages and disadvantages of these three kinds of preparation,reviewed the progress of cellulose-based materials, and systematically summarized cellulose-based biomedical compOsites such as Cellulose/hydroxyapatite, Cellulose/calcium carbonate, and Cellulose/ag composites.Based on our experience, we pointed out the problems and future development of cellulose-based BiomedicalItes.It is expected to provide reference for the resourceful, functional, high-value, and recycling applications of biomass.In the future, it is desired to develop the manufacturing strategy for large-scale synthesis of cellulose-basedComposites, explore its synthetic mechanism, and reveal the intrinsic relationship the among, cellulose functionalIALs, methods and properties.It is so known that cellulose is difficult to dissolve in water or organic solvents under normal conditions because of tHe intra-and inter-molecular hydrogen bonds.Therefore, the development of suitable solvent for dissolving of cellulose is ofMproving their industrial applications.

More recently, the cellulose Nanocrystal has received attentions to its due excellent.It is suggested this cellulose-based functional composites can be fabricated by using cellulose as matrix.Furthermore, rapid progresses are anticipated in the preparation of various-cellulose-based multifunctional composites including efficient antibacterial, flame retardant, waterproof, fireproof, adsorptive, anti-counterfeiting, RapidDetective and analytical functions.
