BACTERIAL CELLULOSE: PROPERTIES, PRODUCTION AND APPLICATIONS $100.00
Authors:  Fabia Karine Andradea, Renata Ap. Nedel Pertilea, Fernando Douradoa and Francisco M. Gama
Abstract:
Bacterial cellulose (BC) is an outstanding biomaterial with unique properties,
including high water holding capacity, high crystallinity, ultrafine fiber network, high
tensile strength in the wet state and the possibility to be shaped into three-dimensional
(3D) structures during synthesis. These properties support a wide range of applications, in
human and veterinary medicine, odonthology, pharmaceutical industry, acoustic and filter
membranes, biotechnological devices and in the food and paper industry.
BC is considered biocompatible, presenting an insignificant foreign body reaction; it does
not elicit chronic inflammatory responses in vivo. These properties make BC very interesting for
tissue engineering applications. Indeed, ongoing research of BC products includes a wide range
of biomedical applications: treatment of chronic wounds and burns as temporary coverage,
artificial cardiovascular tissues, and guided regeneration of bone, cartilage and nerve.
