Abstract

In our recent studies, it was demonstrated that the IONCELL-P process selectively dissolves hemicelluloses from bleached birch kraft pulp in a mixture of 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([emim][OAc]) and water as a solvent system. The IONCELL-P method refines paper-grade pulp to dissolving pulp with
