Nanocomposites based on cellulose nanofibers have been studied for a considerable time since its first introduction, however real applications seem to have hardly developed to these days. The high-strength of cellulose nanofibers suggests the potential to reinforce plastics to produce composites for semi-structural or even structural applications. This paper discusses some of the attempts to produce such high-strength nanocomposites and the main challenges that have to be overcome to bring them into commercial products.
