Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) are naturally-derived nanostructures of growing importance for the production of composites having attractive mechanical properties, and improved sustainability. Polymer–CNC composite gels display a number of the distinctive features of colloidal glasses and their response to the flow conditions encountered during processing of composites can be tuned by chemical additives.
