- A new method to obtain cellulose sulfates from available and inexpensive raw material—aspen wood was developed. This method integrates catalytic peroxide delignification and sulfamic acid sulfation stages. Solvents such as acetic acid and water were used for isolation of pure cellulose by wood peroxide delignification with TiO₂ catalyst. Low-aggressive and less-toxic sulfating agent—sulfamic acid–urea mixture was used to obtain cellulose sulfates.
