Cellulosic materials are getting more and more attention in science and technology due to their biodegradability, renewability, high strength and stiffness, low cost and ecologically friendly formation. Biodegradable green composites from natural components provide a potential and commercial alternative to petroleum-based composite materials without compromising strength, stiffness and abrasion resistance properties to a variety of industrial and other applications. Of natural polymers, lignocellulosic materials are likely to be very important materials as they can be converted into biofuels and bioproducts. Mainly found in lignocellulose, hemicelluloses are the second most abundant renewable material in nature, easy to use, has film-forming features, good biocompatibility, and biodegradability. In this chapter, the production and characterization of environmentally friendly nanocomposites containing hemicelluloses and their use in applications such as food packaging, medical applications, gas barriers have been examined.
