The preparation of carboxymethylated microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) films by dispersion-casting from aqueous dispersions and by surface coating on base papers is described. The oxygen permeability of MFC films were studied at different relative humidity (RH). At low RH (0%), the MFC films showed very low oxygen permeability as compared with films prepared from plasticized starch, whey protein and arabinoxylan and values in the same range as that of conventional synthetic films, e.g., ethylene… 
Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC): pullulan bionanocomposite films
The aim of this work was to develop and characterize microfibrillated cellulose (MFC)/pullulan bionanocomposites. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy suggested that the affinity between the two
Mechanism for Tuning the Hydrophobicity of Microfibrillated Cellulose Films by Controlled Thermal Release of Encapsulated Wax
TLDR
A new approach has been followed for actively tuning the water resistance of a MFC fiber network by the inclusion of dispersed organic nanoparticles with encapsulated plant wax, showing balanced mechanisms of progressive release and migration of wax into the fiber network controlling the surface properties and water contact angles.
Skin and bubble formation in films made of methyl nanocellulose, hydrophobically modified ethyl(hydroxyethyl)cellulose and microfibrillated cellulose
The use of nanomaterials and polymers from renewable resources is important in the search for sustainable alternatives to plastic-based packaging materials and films. In this work, self-supporting
Effects of bentonite on physical, mechanical and barrier properties of cellulose nanofibril hybrid films for packaging applications
There is an increasing attention to cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) for food packaging applications due to their abundance, biodegradability, and low gas permeability. In this work, oxygen and water
Enhanced mechanical and gas barrier performance of plasticized cellulose nanofibril films
Abstract Cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) are mixed with plasticizers; sorbitol and glycerol, through high-pressure homogenization to prepare multifunctional biohybrid films. The resulting plasticized
Tuning physical, mechanical and barrier properties of cellulose nanofibril films through film drying techniques coupled with thermal compression
Cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) have already been proved to be a potential candidate as one of the next-generation renewable and sustainable packaging materials. However, the mechanical and barrier
Three-Dimensional Microstructural Properties of Nanofibrillated Cellulose Films
TLDR
It was demonstrated that in increasing relative humidity the films swelled and the oxygen barrier properties decreased, and the characterization techniques applied shed more light on the structures of NFC films and how they are affected by varying humidity levels.
On the structure and oxygen transmission rate of biodegradable cellulose nanobarriers
TLDR
A relationship between OTR and the structure of the corresponding nanofibril-based films was confirmed and the obtained OTR levels were considerably better than the levels recommended for packaging applications.
Improvement of mechanical and oxygen barrier properties of cellulose films by controlling drying conditions of regenerated cellulose hydrogels

Material properties of plasticized hardwood xylans for potential application as oxygen barrier films.
TLDR
Free films based on glucuronoxylan isolated from aspen wood were prepared by casting from aqueous solutions and drying in a controlled environment and thus examination of the material properties of these films found that films with xylitol gave lower extensibility.
Strength and barrier properties of MFC films
The preparation of microfibrillar cellulose (MFC) films by filtration on a polyamide filter cloth, in a dynamic sheet former and as a surface layer on base paper is described. Experimental evidence
Transparent and high gas barrier films of cellulose nanofibers prepared by TEMPO-mediated oxidation.
TLDR
The T OCN films prepared from softwood cellulose were transparent and flexible and had extremely low coefficients of thermal expansion caused by high crystallinity of TOCN, which is promising for potential applications in some high-tech materials.
