The capability of several ionic liqs. to dissolve cellulose compds. was exploited for the prepn. of colloids with an improved stability. Thus, inorg. particles from the nanometer to the micrometer range were homogeneously dispersed in different solns. of cellulose in ionic liqs. The possibility of utilizing cellulose compds. either to manipulate some phys. properties of the ionic liqs. or to modify the surface the particles were investigated which may improve the stability of the colloids against sedimentation. The proposed approach may represent an inexpensive method for the prepn. of "environmentally-friendly" composites with different functional properties. [on SciFinder (R)]
