Cellulose is the most abundant biopolymer in nature, and has many characteristics such as renewable, biodegradable, and non-toxic. This polymer consists of six hydroxyl groups within a repeating structure of β-D-glucopyranose units, giving cellulose a high degree of functionality. Due to these advantageous properties, various structures and compounds have been prepared based on cellulose. The production of nanocellulose under acidic conditions results in a large surface area presenting hydroxyl groups. In this case, different chemical modifications can be made to its surface, including the addition of fluorophores. CD Bioparticles manufactures and supplies FITC or rhodamine B labeled celluloses.
