Self-assembled cellulose film was prepared from a stable aqueous dispersion of ND CNCs using the air-drying process at room temperature. For comparison, another pure cellulose film was prepared from the FD CNCs (which also produced from the same ND CNC suspension after quickly freezing using liquid nitrogen followed by freeze-drying) via casting from their aqueous suspension. The dataset contains the raw data highlighting the influence of the microstructures created during the air and freeze-drying processes on nanoscale structure (measured by small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS)), light transparency (UV-visible), chemical (FTIR), thermal (TGA, DSC), crystallization (XRD) and water contact angle properties of the cellulose nanocrystal films.
