Abstract

Stiff yet flexible and strong transparent film materials mimicking the structure of crustacean exoskeletons were obtained from calcium carbonate and cellulose. These biobased materials have the composite structure of a three-dimensional nanoscale network of surface-carboxylated crystalline cellulose incorporated into an amorphous inorganic-based hybrid matrix of nanosegregated calcium carbonate and acidic polymers.
