Abstract

The complex, multi-level super molecular architecture of cellulose has been the subject of interest for several decades. The mechanical, physical, and environmental properties of cellulose depend on the molecular, supramolecular and morphological structure of the cellulose. This paper gives a brief overview to micro structural analysis of cellulose, as studied using transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The application of these techniques to study the diverse morphology of cellulose and its composites is illustrated using several examples.
