Cellulose aerogels: Highly porous, ultra-lightweight materials
Cellulosic aerogels are intriguing new materials produced by supercritical drying of regenerated cellulose obtained by solvent exchange of solid Lyocell moldings. From N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide (NMMO) solutions with cellulose contents between 1 and 12%, dimensionally stable cellulose bodies are produced, in which the solution structure of the cellulose is largely preserved and transferred into the solid state, the material having densities down to 0.05 g cm-3 and surface areas of up to 280 m2 g-1. In this study, several aspects of cellulosic aerogel production are communicated: the stabilization of the cellulose solutions against degradation reactions by agents suitable for later extraction and drying, a reliable extraction and drying procedure by supercritical carbon dioxide, the advantages of DMSO/NMMO in this procedure as a solvent/non-solvent pair, and some data on the physical properties of the materials.
