Imidazolium grafted cellulose nanocrystals for ion exchange applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

An imidazolium salt was grafted to cellulose nanocrystals (also called nanowhiskers) using copper(I) catalysed azide–alkyne cycloaddition and the bromide anion was successfully exchanged for bistriflimide and an anionic dye, providing the opportunity to synthesize a wide variety of ion exchange systems or catalysts using cellulose nanocrystals as a support medium.
