1-ally-3-methylimidazolium chloride (AMIMCI) is currently being used as a solvent for cellulose dissolution. AMIMCI is a green solvent and has excellent dissolution ability, wide liquid range and ease of recycling. Development of green technology nowadays promotes the use of cellulosic materials in the production of daily used products. Cellulose was chosen due to its properties as biodegradable, low cost and easily obtained. 33wt% of cellulose was successfully extracted from sugarcane bagasse through the alkali and nitric acid hydrolyzed treatments. Cellulose characterization was carried out by using Scanning Electron Microscope and Fourier Infrared Transform spectroscopy. Cellulose could be easily dissolved in the AMIMCI and could be regenerated by the water coagulation process. The slight different in absorption peaks of FTIR spectrum in original cellulose and the regenerated cellulose had proven that AMIMCI was a direct solvent. The AMIMCI was easily recycled due to its thermostable and nonvolatile nature.
