The aim of this work was to verify the possibility of directly preparing cellulose nanocrystals from eucalyptus nanofibers by means of acid hydrolysis. The produced nanocrystals were characterized by different techniques. The results were very promising, showing that cellulose nanocrystals with typical needle-like morphology and high degrees of crystalinilty can be obtained.
