Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) is a biopolymer that has been used in a variety of applications ranging from speaker diaphragms to biomedical products. With the exact chemical structure as that produced by plants, BNC is created by microbes like Gluconacetobacter xylinus. One of the unique aspects of BNC is its ability to have a wide variety of mechanical properties while in hydrogel form.
