New Paper - Dissolution of Hemp Yarns


Alrefaei, N.S., Hine, P.J. & Ries, M.E. Dissolution of hemp yarns by 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate studied with time-temperature superposition. Cellulose (2023).   This study examined the dissolution of hemp yarns in the ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate. Yarns were immersed in the liquid at different temperatures and times, then coagulated in water, forming a composite yarn....
