A process for preparing a dispersion of nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) particles from various types of plant raw materials that is based on the use of preliminary radiation-chemical treatment, hydrolysis, and ultrasound treatment is described. The experiments produced dispersions in which the NCC particles had thin rod-like shapes of length 100-500 nm and width 25-50 nm.
