Summary of "Milling in Seconds Accelerates Acetylation of Cellulose in Hours."

A new sustainable synthetic method for cellulose acetate was developed by a combination of I-catalyzed solid-liquid acetylation of cellulose and a milling process reducing the crystallinity of cellulose within a few seconds. Milled low-crystalline cellulose was acetylated faster than the original cellulose with higher crystallinity. The plausible factors of acceleration were the conversion of the hydroxy group in hydrogen bonds into reactive ones and the efficient formation of the catalytic species I by the enhanced formation of I assisted by the amorphous domain of the milled cellulose, while the morphological and structural changes were ignorable.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nonspecific term used to describe transient alterations or loss of consciousness following closed head injuries. The duration of UNCONSCIOUSNESS generally lasts a few seconds, but may persist for several hours. Concussions may be classified as mild, intermediate, and severe. Prolonged periods of unconsciousness (often defined as greater than 6 hours in duration) may be referred to as post-traumatic coma (COMA, POST-HEAD INJURY). (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p418)

Temporary storage of information for a few seconds to hours, as opposed to long-term memory which refers to material stored for days, years, or a lifetime.

A type of ion exchange chromatography using diethylaminoethyl cellulose (DEAE-CELLULOSE) as a positively charged resin. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

Cellulose derivative used in chromatography, as ion-exchange material, and for various industrial applications.

A cellulose of varied carboxyl content retaining the fibrous structure. It is used as a local hemostatic and as a matrix for normal blood coagulation.
