Kelp (Laminaria japonica) is an economically important type of algae cultured in East Asia. Kelp waste is a by-product from the extraction of commercial alginate from kelp. This work reports the isolation of nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) from the cellulose extracted from the kelp waste. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) show that the crystallinity index of the isolated kelp NCC was 69.4%, which was slightly higher than that of kelp cellulose as well as… CONTINUE READING
