Abstract

Cellulose and cellulose derivatives, obtained from trees and cotton plants, can be used as a biorenewable source of chemicals, e.g., to prepare polymers for applications in paints, plastics, and for the formulation of other materials, .g., fiber, paper, and membranes. The opportunity to use ionic liquids (IL) as solvents for clean extraction and processing of cellulose was studied. Cellulose can be dissolved in a number of IL and easily regenerated by contacting with water. This allows a simple, benign system for the processing of cellulose into fibers, monoliths and films by forming into an aqueous phase. This has potential benefits over current processing methodologies, which make use of non-green solvents. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 6th Annual Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference (Washington, D.C. 6/24-27/2003).
