Abstract

The hydroxyl groups of cellulose molecules were specifically substituted by fluorescent probe groups and their fluorescence behavior was studied with the change in the concentration of the THF solution. The results show that the fluorescent probes yield microscopic information on aggregation and that the hydroxyl groups at the 6-position of the cellulose repeating unit play an important role in this gelation process.
