- ... Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are predominantly obtained by the traditional sulfuric acid hydrolysis process. However, as-prepared CNCs powder features low thermal stability and poor redispersibility due to the existence of sulfonate groups and the hydrogen bond interaction among particles. Herein, by mixing the ionic liquid [BMIm][BF4] with freshly prepared CNCs without dialysis through a simple ...
