Study on Performances of Cyanethyl Chitosan Fiber Prepared from [Asp]Cl Ionic Liquid
Aspartic acid hydrochloride ionic liquid ([Asp]Cl) was successfully synthesized from aspartic acid powder and 36% hydrochloric acid. The derivative of chitosan cyanoethyl chitosan was prepared by acrylonitrile and alkali chitosan at room temperature. Structures of ionic liquid and cyanoethyl chitosan were characterized by FT-IR. Crystalline properties of cyanoethyl chitosan were characterized by XRD. Cyanoethyl chitosan was dissolved in [Asp]Cl ionic liquid aqueous solution and subjected to wet spinning. The mechanical properties of cyanoethyl chitosan fibers were tested by type LLY-06 electronic single fiber strength tester, and the surface morphology of fibers were observed by microscope. The results show that the maximum breaking strength of fiber was 2.212CN/dtex when the concentration of cyanoethyl chitosan was 6.5% relativing to 3% ionic liquid and the coagulating bath temperature was 30°C.
