Abstract

Over the years, nanobiopolymers produced by living organisms such as nanostarch nanochitin, nanocellulose, and nanosilk, as well as microbial nanobiopolymers, have gained a wide scientific and engineering attraction mainly due to the benefits related to sustainability and biodegradability. Several mechanical, chemical, and biological methods have been employed for the fabrication of these nanobiopolymers and their respective composites. In this chapter, we present and discuss the different approaches that have been used for the fabrication of nanobiopolymers. Then, we summarize the methods commonly used for the preparation of nanobiopolymers in the later section of this chapter.
