Instantaneous dissolution of cellulose in organic electrolyte solutions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein a novel class of solvent systems for cellulose is introduced. Surprisingly, organic electrolyte solutions, which contain just a small molar fraction of ionic liquid, dissolve instantaneously large amounts of cellulose. The solvation properties of the solvent systems, required for dissolving the polymer, are discussed here.
