Cellulose – Uptake

Nanocellulose is mainly used in medical implants [1,2], and in wound care applications. So it comes into direct contact with the tissue. The roles of the lung, the skin, and the gastro-intestinal tract as the main entrance gates take a back seat. Bacterial nanocellulose films are not considered toxic.

Currently, there are few studies that deal with the ecotoxicological potential of nanocellulose. Nanocellulose possesses antimicrobial properties, i.e. the growth of bacteria and fungi is effectively suppressed.
