Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) is produced by some bacterial strains to enable them to keep on the surface of cultural media. Compared to "common" cellulose, BNC becomes even more popular for its higher crystallinity and better mechanical properties. It can be used in a broad spectrum of industrial applications. This work describes the structure, properties, and origin of BNC together with factors that can affect the growth of BNC in a laboratory. Possible usage in industry, particularly in various medical applications, such as wound healing, is also discussed.
