Mass transport during coagulation of cellulose-ionic liquid solutions in different non-solvents

Cellulose extracted from trees or other plants can be reshaped into foams, films, or fibers using dissolution–precipitation processes. Ionic liquids, ILs, constitute a new class of cellulose solvents that could provide an alternative to the …

Laccase/TEMPO-mediated bacterial cellulose functionalization: production of paper-silver nanoparticles composite with antimicrobial activity

Bacterial cellulose (BC) is a biopolymer produced by some microorganisms, especially from the genera Komagataeibacter . In terms of chemical structure, BC is identical to the cellulose produced by vascular plants, composed by units of glucose …

Preparation and thermostability of cellulose nanocrystals and nanofibrils from two sources of biomass: rice straw and polar wood

Natural fibers are being used to reinforce polymers due to their advantages over synthetic fibers (i.e., low cost, low density, availability in abundance, environmental friendliness, high flexibility, renewability, and biodegradability). The most …

Two characteristic cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) obtained from oxalic acid and sulfuric acid processing

Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) have recently attracted much considerable attention due to their unique properties including large surface area, low density, high mechanical properties, renewability and biodegradability (Zhang and Liu 2018 ). To …

Effect of vacuum/pressure cycles on cell wall composition and structure of poplar wood

A comparison was made of the hygroscopicity, cell wall chemical composition and crystallinity of recently peeled poplar (Populus spp.) wood and wood of the same species subjected to repeated cycles (20, 60 and 80) of vacuum/pressure (85 kPa/600 …

About this journal

Cellulose is an international journal devoted to the dissemination of research and scientific and technological progress in the field of cellulose and related naturally occurring polymers. The journal is concerned with the pure and applied science of cellulose and related materials, and also with the development of relevant new technologies. This includes the chemistry, biochemistry, physics and materials science of cellulose and its sources, including wood and other biomass resources, and their derivatives. Coverage extends to the conversion of these polymers and resources into manufactured goods, such as pulp, paper, textiles, and manufactured as well natural fibers, and to the chemistry of materials used in their processing. Cellulose publishes review articles, research papers, and technical notes.
