Glycidyl celluloses were prepared from completely allylated methylcellulose and tri‐O‐allylcellulose with m‐chloroperbenzoic acid in homogeneous chloroform solutions. The degrees of substitution (DS) by epoxy groups were 0.60 and 1.33 for the products prepared from allylated methylcellulose and tri‐O‐allylcellulose, respectively. They were soluble in not only many organic solvents, but also methanol‐water mixtures [more than 70% (v/v)]. These products were characterized by infrared spectroscopy (IR), 13C‐NMR spectroscopy, and gel permeation chromatography (GPC).
