This study reports a method to achieve dispersion of freeze-dried Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) with polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) in a water-methanol co-solvent system using purely mechanical means; in this case, magnetic stirring and sonication. During this study, no chemical modifiers or surfactants of any kind were added during the dispersion process as they increase the cost and duration of the manufacturing process for CNC reinforced composites and nanocomposites.
