Cellulose is a very widely available biomass found in nature. Cellulose can be isolated from regular filaments; its dynamic and structural association enables various types of nanostructured celluloses called nanocrystalline cellulose or microstructure cellulose. More recently, literature survey reveals that cellulose nanoparticles have been separated and utilised for a few applications in various fields. Thus, there is a growing interest among the scientific research community to understand nanocrystalline cellulose and tap it for its usage in diverse scientific fields. The vast majority of the examinations in the course of the most recent couple of years have demonstrated that nanocrystalline cellulose can be utilised as filler materials to improve the mechanical and barrier properties of biocomposites. Their importance of nanocrystalline to enhance the mechanical properties is being investigated; with extensive research being focussed to discover inventive answers for effective and manageable frame works. This paper plans to give an unmistakable outline of nanocrystalline cellulose of 44 references by depicting their readiness, portrayal, behaviour, importance and applications.
