Chemisorption of carbon dioxide by 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([C2mim][OAc]) provides a route to coagulate chitin and cellulose from [C2mim][OAc] solutions without the use of high-boiling antisolvents (e.g., water or ethanol). The use of CO2 chemisorption as an alternative coagulating process has the potential to provide an economical and energy-efficient method for recycling the ionic liquid.
