Crosslinked cellulose aerogels with extremely high impact strengths are very promising new materials. Their physical properties, which are described in this communication, may lead to promising applications, such as special coatings, thermal insulation, acoustical barriers, and membranes, for which the materials can be handled and used under rugged conditions. They can also serve as templates for the formation of binary aerogel composites with metal oxides.
