Nanocellulose is a biodegradable material, which comes from natural sources and has properties such as good chemical compatibility, low density, high mechanical properties and low thermal conductivity, characteristics that make it a potential material for several applications. Among the potential forms and applications is the production of nanocellulose aerogel. This chapter summarizes the main ways of obtaining nanocellulose aerogel and its properties. The main applications, like materials absorbents, carbon porous materials, gas filters and membranes, packaging materials, biomedical and pharmaceutical, electrical devices, energy storage systems, thermal insulation and fire-retardant materials are also discussed.
