About this book

This book summarizes recent progress in cellulose chemistry. The last 10 years have witnessed important developments, because sustainability is a major concern. Biodegradable cellulose derivatives, in particular esters and ethers, are employed on a large scale. The recent developments in cellulose chemistry include unconventional methods for the synthesis of derivatives, introduction of novel solvents, e.g. ionic liquids, novel approaches to regioselective derivatization of cellulose, preparation of nano-particles and nano-composites for specific applications. These new developments are discussed comprehensively. This book is aimed at researchers and professionals working on cellulose and its derivatives. It fills an important gap in teaching, because most organic chemistry textbooks concentrate on the relatively simple chemistry of mono- and disaccharides. The chemistry and, more importantly, the applications of cellulose are only concisely mentioned.

Reviews

“The aim of the book to describe the most important features of the chemistry and chemical technology of cellulose and its derivatives was fully accomplished. Therefore, the content is of interest to all those concerned with the production and use of cellulosic products whether in academic or industrial circles, new in the domain or experienced cellulose scientists.” (Bogdan Marian Tofanica, Cellulose Chemistry and Technology, Vol. 53 (5-6), 2019)
