Mechanism of cellulose polymer reactions with some cation-exchanged montmorillonite catalysts

Abstract

The degradation of cotton cellulose polymer by Li+-, K+- and NH4 +-exchanged montmorillonite has been studied. A general reaction scheme is proposed. The mechanism of this reaction would most probably involve chain breaking and increasing the reducing power of cellulose polymer by dissociation of water molecules coordinated to the central metal ion.
