The objective of this study is to explore the possibility of using waste cotton fabrics (WCFs) as low cost feedstock for the production of value-added products. Our previous study (Tian et al., 2014) demonstrated that acidic ionic liquids (ILs) can be highly efficient catalysts for controllable synthesis of cellulose acetate (CA) due to their dual function of swelling and catalyzing. In this study, an optimized "quasi-homogeneous" process which required a small amount of acidic ILs as catalyst… Expand
