Preparation and Characterization of Cellulose-Silver Nanocomposites by in situ Reduction with Alkalis as Activation Reagent

Abstract

A simple, environmentally friendly, and efficient synthesis method for cellulose/silver (Ag) nanocomposites was developed by microwave heating an alkaline aqueous solution of cellulose fiber and silver nitrate (AgNO3), which resulted in good utilization of silver ions and a product with high silver content. The effect of the alkaline compounds and reducing… (More)
