Cellulose pulp was used as raw material and a nano-cellulose dispersion was successfully prepared via electron beam radiation degradation, wet refining, and high-pressure homogenization treatment. The results showed that the parameters in the nano-cellulose preparation optimization process were as follows:the fiber dispersion concentration was 2%, refining frequency was 5 times, alkali concentration was 5%, and absorbed dose was 100 kGy. The diameter and length of the prepared nano-cellulose were approximately 60 nm and 1 μm, respectively.
