For some time now, nanocellulose has been at the focus of a good deal of industrial and scientific interest as a novel biomaterial due to their wide abundance, their renewability, and their outstanding mechanical properties. Cellulose is the most abundant biopolymer on earth, derived from a variety of living species. Cotton linter is the by-product from cotton textile and has high cellulose content, beside pectins, proteinaceous matter, waxes, ash, and minor soluble polysaccharides. As an essentially regenerative natural resource, it has been applied widely owing to its low cost. This chapter provides an overview of the recent research on the fundamental and composite properties of nanoparticles extracted from cotton linter. It contains a general introduction to cellulose and basic techniques of nanocellulose preparation with its properties. The incorporation of nanocellulose in composite materials including processing methods and properties is also presented.
