Considerable demand exists for renewable and biodegradable plastics. Previous attempts to provide such plastics have met with mixed results in the trade off between biodegradability; thermal stability; mechanical properties. The invention discloses a strong nanocomposite with improved thermal stability comprised of cellulose compounds, an environmentally beneficial solution satisfying above trilemma.
