Fully green materials have experienced fast growth in the past several decades,and cellulose nanofiber (CNF) and cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) are the preferred choice for the manufacture of environmentally friendly nanocomposites and fully green bionanocomposites. We focus on the recent research and progress made on cellulose-reinforced bionanocomposites where CNF or CNC serves as the nanophase in a matrix made of synthetic or bio-based polymers or their derivatives. At the same time, the role of CNF and CNC in these bionanocomposites will be elucidated and elaborated upon. Finally, the perspective and current challenges of CNF- and CNC-enhanced bionanocomposites in future preparation andapplication are outlined.
