IIT Kharagpur researchers have developed cellulose nanocrystals from cucumber peels that can be used to make food packaging materials. Researchers said the cellulose nanocrystals possess modifiable properties due to presence of abundant hydroxyl groups, which result in better biodegradability. Such nanocrystals can help produce packaging materials with low oxygen permeabilities.
