Cellulose dissolution and regeneration has been a very attractive field of research for many years, and has recently attracted renewed attention. This is reflected in both applications—earlier and novel—and new scientific questions. This abundant natural resource already occupies a prominent place regarding the bulk use of renewable polymers, offering a wide variety of applications that are hardly matched by any other natural or synthetic compound. This Special Issue attempts to connect a state-of-the-art fundamental understanding of different molecular aspects with novel cellulose-based applications and renewable materials.
