Applications of the Hansen Solubility Parameter for Cellulose

Jinyan Lang, Na Wang, Xinhui Wang, Yili Wang, Guorong Chen, Heng Zhang


Based on the solubility parameter theory, the Hansen solubility parameters of various solvents were calculated and compared to predict the solubility of cellulose in various solvents, which illustrates the feasibility of Hansen solubility parameters to predict the solubility of cellulose in solvents. This paper aims to make a more accurate prediction in advance when finding suitable cellulose solvent system, and then to reduce the burden of cellulose solvent selection.
