Preparation and Properties of Cellulose Solutions

Abstract : Cellulose cannot melt and is not soluble in common organic solvents. The first part of this chapter is a review of the main aspects of cellulose dissolution. Research results obtained in several EPNOE laboratories are then described. This includes the mechanisms of the dissolution of native cellulose fibres, solution properties in sodium hydroxide water and ionic liquids, stabilisation of cellulose in N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide-water and mixtures of cellulose with other polysaccharide or lignin in solution
