Thalangamaarachchige Sanjit Acharya Noureddine Abidi Received: 12 January 2018 / Accepted: 21 May 2018 Springer Science+Business Media B.V., part of Springer Nature 2018 Abstract In this study, we report on a new strategy and interact with inter and intra molecular hydrogen using low-concentration acetic acid (LCAA) to pro- bonds of cellulose. Understanding the role of LCAA in mote cellulose dissolution. High-molecular-weight the dissolution of cellulose is of particular interest in (HMW) cotton cellulose (DP [ 5000) was simply developing a new concept to design new solvents and soaked in a dilute acetic acid aqueous solution effective strategies for cellulose dissolution.

Material characterization results Co-solvent DMAc/LiCl indicated that no cellulose acetylation occurred during the dissolution process and the acetic acid could be easily removed during cellulose regeneration. It was also noticed that using LCAA to activate cellulose Introduction signiﬁcantly reduced the viscosity of cellulose solu- tion and promoted the
