Well-crystallized and hexagonal wurtzite ZnO was synthesized with nanocellulose using a facile hydrothermal method. Many highly active (001) facets were retained in the obtained ZnO nanocrystals, presumably due to interaction between the polar facet of ZnO and the nanocellulose. Given its effective surface area, the synthesized ZnO exhibited good photocatalytic activity of degrading methylene blue. Its degradation efficiency reached 94.4% within 30 min (UV irradiation power of 6 W), which wasdoi:10.15376/biores.11.3.6244-6253 fatcat:6hun2jbrczajpkm5q75fph7vpa
