Dual friendship: Hydrophobic functionality provides the primary and strong driving forces for adsorbing cellulosic molecules onto carbons (see picture). The driving forces consist of entropically driven hydrophobic interactions and CH–π hydrogen bonds, and thus, carbons can adsorb cellulosic molecules even at the high temperatures required for the conversion of cellulose.
