Cellulose produced from cotton fibers was used as substrate for synthesis of oil-absorbing materials by SET-LRP. The cellulose macroinitiator was prepared by esterification of hydroxyl group with BiBB, followed by grafting with BMA and PETA to render a three-dimensional architecture. The polymerization was catalyzed by Cu(0)/HMTA. The maximum oil absorption to chloroform and toluene could reach 29.0 and 15.4 g·g−1, respectively.
