Abstract

There is an increasing willingness to develop new cellulose-based materials, particularly from homogeneous solution, due to the fact that cellulose is the earth’s most abundant biorenewable resource. The
opportunity to use ionic liquids as solvents for clean extraction and
processing of cellulose has been investigated. Cellulose can be dissolved
in a number of ionic liquids 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 environmental and cost advantages over current processing
methodologies which make use of volatile or hazardous solvents.
