Rheological Properties of Concentrated 1-Allyl-3-Methylimidazolium Chloride Cellulose Solutions
The viscosity behaviors and elastic properties of concentrated cellulose 1-allyl-3-methy -limidazolium Chloride solutions were investigated in the concentration from 10 wt% to 25 wt%. Rheological measurement showed that the solution was pesudoplastic fluid. The non-Newtonian behavior was improved and shear-thinning tendency became more pronounced with increasing polymer concentration. The power law index ranged from 0.19 to 0.30. The effects of cellulose concentration to the storage modulus G′ and the loss modulus G″ were analyzed. First normal stress difference (N1) increased with increasing concentration.
