Cellulose nanofiber materials for flexible device applications


Nanocellulose paper was produced with 3−15 nm wide cellulose nanofibers, and they exhibited both high transparency and highly smooth surfaces, while retaining the light weight and high foldability of conventional paper[1]. Therefore, nanocellulose paper is one of the best candidate substrates for flexible electronics. In this presentation, we introduce their applications of future electronics such as nonvolatile memory, transistor arrays, organic solar cells, flexible antenna, and transparent conductive electrodes [2]. Moreover, we also introduce the key parameters of developments for paper electronics, and the high efficient process for clear transparent nanopaper [3].
