The complementary capabilities of various characterisation methods for micro-structural assessment are demonstrated. The assessed structures were composed of unbleached microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) in combination with bleached and 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyl-1-oxyl (TEMPO) pre-treated MFC materials. The biodegradable nano-composites were thus characterised in detail
