Cellulose in NaOH–water based solvents: a review
Research output: Contribution to journal › Review Article
- CNRS UMR 7635
The article is a critical review of all aspects of the dissolution of cellulose in NaOH-based aqueous solutions: from the background properties of the solvent itself, to the mechanisms of cellulose fibre swelling and dissolution, solution structure and properties and influence of additives and, finally, to the properties of various materials (fibres, films, aerogels, composites and interpenetrated networks) prepared from these solutions. A historical evolution of the research on this topic is presented. The pros and cons of NaOH-based aqueous solvent for cellulose are summarised and some prospects are suggested.
