Dimethyl sulfoxide enhances both the cellulose dissolution ability and biocompatibility of a carboxylate-type liquid zwitterion

Author affiliations

Abstract

The cellulose dissolution ability of a liquid zwitterion, the most biocompatible cellulose solvent, was improved by adding a co-solvent, dimethylsulfoxide. Moreover, the biocompatibility of the liquid zwitterion was also improved by adding dimethylsulfoxide although it is toxic relative to the liquid zwitterion. This mixture is an efficient and extremely biocompatible cellulose solvent.
