Cellulose consists of a multitude of thin, long nanofibers with both crystalline and noncrystalline regions. If these fibers are isolated and broken down into lengthy, mostly crystalline polymers, they can then be reconstituted into novel materials, one which is foam. Nanofibrillar cellulose foam (NFC), however, has not been able to perform at its theoretical strength. Therefore, its deformation must be examined to determine how its fabrication can be improved.
