Radiation-induced degradation of cellulose in the 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ionic liquid

Peng, J.; Cai, D.*; Hao, Y.*; Zhai, M.*; Lin, M.; Katsumura, Yosuke

1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([Bmim]Cl) ionic liquid has demonstrated good solubility for cellulose without derivation. In this work, the radiation effects on microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) in [Bmim]Cl has been investigated by measuring the molecular weight of MCC after $$gamma$$-ray irradiation. The radiation-induced degradation kinetics of MCC was studied and Gd value of MCC was calculated.
