Weak gel of chitin with ionic liquid, 1-allyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide

This paper reports the formation of weak gel of chitin with an ionic liquid, 1-allyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide (IL). When a mixture of 5% (w/w) chitin with IL was heated at 100 degrees C for 48h, the clear liquid was obtained. The experimental process was observed by the CCD camera view and the SE...
