|Title:||Investigation of cellulose acetate viscoelastic properties in different solvents and microstructure|
|Abstract:||This paper deals with the effect of solvent on the viscoelastic properties and microstructure of cellulose acetate (CA) by means of rheological measurements, dynamic-mechanical analysis and scanning electron microscopy. Acetone, acetic acid, dimethylacetamide (DMAc) and dimethylformamide (DMF) were used as good solvents and water as a non-solvent. The addition of water in the cellulose acetate/solvent mixture led to the development of an intense shear thinning behavior, as it caused the formation of CA agglomerates which were disrupted in a steady shearing condition. Apart from this, a three-dimensional elastic gel behavior in the CA/DMF/water and CA/DMAc/water solutions was observed during dynamical rheological analysis. The formation of CA agglomerates was controlled by the solvent type and resulted in microstructure changes, going from a dense structure to a porous one, and also influenced the CA chain rigidity and consequently the glass transition temperatures of the CA films.
