Abstract

Back Cover: Cellulose, the most abundant terrestrial biopolymer, can be dissolved efficiently in a mixture of acetone and a quaternary ammonium chloride. The properties of the resulting translucent cellulose solution may lead to new functional cellulose derivatives or enhance shaping processes. Further information can be found in the article by Marc Kostag, Tim Liebert, and Thomas Heinze* on page 1419.
