(2007): Drawing of self-reinforced cellulose films

Self-reinforced cellulose films were prepared by incomplete dissolution of commercial microcrystalline cellulose in LiCl/DMAc solvent and subsequent coagulation of regenerated cellulose in the presence of undissolved microcrystalline cellulose. By drawing in wet conditions and subsequent drying, preferred orientation was introduced into the self-reinforced cellulose films, resulting in significantly improved tensile strength of up to 430 MPa and modulus of elasticity of up to 33 GPa. A linear relationship was observed between applied draw, and the orientation of cellulose in the films, and the measured elastic modulus and tensile strength, respectively. The optically transparent drawn films significantly surpass the strength and modulus of elasticity of current all-bio-based planar materials and may therefore present a bio-degradable alternative to nonbio-based materials with similar performance.
