The nanocrystals are byproducts of cellulose-heavy paper, pulp, agriculture and bioenergy processes.
reported a mechanochemical approach to manufacture bamboo cellulose nanocrystals (BCNCs) [70].
Furthermore, temperature-programmed reduction was conducted to generate oxygen vacancies related with ferromagnetic, magnetoelectric, relaxor ferroelectricity, and optic properties in [La.sub.0.05][Li.sub.0.85]Nb[O.sub.3] and LiNb[O.sub.3] on singlephase nanocrystals. Ferroelectrical samples were then annealed by reduction heat treatment (RHT) in an Ar-5%[H.sub.2] atmosphere for 20 minutes at 900[degrees]C.
This work was aimed at evaluating the effect of chitin source on characteristics of the obtained chitin nanocrystals and on a possibility to use them as stabilizing agents for fabrication of core-shell poly(L,L-lactide)/chitin microparticles via the Pickering emulsion solvent evaporation technique.
Silicon nanocrystals (ncSi) produced by current methods are polydisperse, meaning that producing them results in particles of different sizes at the nanoscale--from one to 100 nanometres --with one to five nanometres showing the greatest quantum effects.
Both, Si and Ge, as well as Si/Ge core/shell nanocrystals follow the principle(s) of Quantum confinement.
To determine the areal density of deposited nanocrystals, we simply divide the areal density of selenium by the number of selenium atoms in a nanocrystal.

For example, dual-modal (UC/DC) luminescence has been successfully realized through lanthanide (Ln) ions doped NaGdF4 core/shell nanocrystals by Chen's group [11].
It is very attractive and desirable to design a novel approach so that the inorganic nanocrystal units can be used to directly assemble the hierarchical structures under relatively mild conditions.
However, several are also seeking to move into applications in areas such as electronics and adding production of Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) for more advanced applications.
