Nanocomposite structure of cell wall The biogenesis of cell wall leads to an anisotropic nanocomposite structure that dominates the behaviour of plant tissues, e.g. wood, as a material. In this composite, the hydrated hemicelluloses, pectins and/or lignin form the matrix which the thin (3-4 nm) cellulose elementary fibrils (EFs) reinforce as the load bearing elements.
