New highly porous pure cellulose aerogel-like material called "aerocellulose" was prepared from aqueous cellulose/NaOH solutions. Solutions were gelled to obtain shaped three-dimensional objects, then cellulose was regenerated and dried in supercritical conditions using CO2. The porosity of aerocellulose is higher than 95% with pore sizes distribution from a few tens of nanometers to a few tens of micrometers. The internal specific surface area is around 200-300 m2/g, and density ranges from 0… CONTINUE READING
