dc.description.abstractBiopolymers are polymers that are produced by or derived from living organisms, such as plants and microbes, rather than from petroleum, the traditional source of polymers. Bacterial cellulose (BC) is a natural biomaterial synthesized by bacteria. It possesses a unique structure of cellulose nanofiber-weaved threedimensional reticulated network that endows it excellent mechanical properties, high water-holding capability and outstanding suspension stability. However, drawbacks such as high production cost and processability and consequently constant application are the reason why this material still has the attention of the scientific community. This work contains information related to the first three months of data collection, with preliminary results.en_US
