Abstract

The mechanical and facture properties of cellulose nanopaper are investigated by an atomistically informed coarse-grained modeling approach. Using a representative nanopaper with nacre-inspired brick-mortar structure, the critical length scale that governs the mechanical and fracture properties of cellulose nanopaper is quantified considering the influence of fiber overlap length and surface interaction energies between nanocrystals.
