A team of researchers (Chowdhury, Rai, Glynn, Morgan, Moore and Youngblood) at Purdue University have been investigating the properties of Cellulose Nanocrystals (CNCs) – poly(vinyl) alcohol composite films. They have found that the thermal conductivity of these films can be increased by an order of magnitude through the inclusion of CNC. The authors conclude that beyond the superior overall thermal performance over commonly used plastic films utilized in flexible electronic devices, the new films have better heat spreading capability to moderate localised hot spot generation. All of this in a biodegradable package!
