Abstract: This book chapter focuses on bacterial cellulose (BC), with many recent contemporary studies, an explanation of BC producers and synthesis mechanisms, and a summary of their production methods. Few studies are directly related to sustainability with BC, a promising biomaterial for different solutions due to its properties. Thus, a comprehensive review of BC and research trends in this area are evaluated by bibliometric analysis. The distribution of publications by years, influential countries, organizations, journals, authors, citation analysis, distribution of publications by scientific disciplines, keyword analysis, and research focuses are emphasized. Scientific publications were taken from the WoS database, and graphics were created with the “VOSviewer” and “Carrot2” programs. According to the analysis, studies on BC started in 1980, but studies on sustainability were found in 2005 and later. It has also been observed that studies on BC in materials science have increased significantly in 2016 and beyond. Finally, bacterial cellulose has been discussed in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Therefore it can be said that there is a potential for use in the textile, architecture, and food packaging sectors, and more detailed research is still needed. As a result, the dissemination of BC-related studies in these areas has great potential for a completely sustainable production method. © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2023.
