Summary A novel biodegradable pH- and salinity-responsive cellulose copolymer was prepared by grafting 2-(Dimethylamino) ethylmethacrylate (DMAEMA) onto bagasse cellulose in ionic liquid. The grafting polymerization was achieved in 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([Bmim]Cl) under microwave irradiation. Copolymers were then characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and thermo gravimetric analysis measurements. The results revealed that polymer chains had been successfully bonded to the cellulose backbone. Furthermore, the self-assembly of cellulose-g-DMAEMA copolymers at various salt concentrations and pH solution were investigated by means of swelling behavior measurement. It indicated that the copolymers presented dual pH and salinity-responsive properties. The synthetic strategy showed great potential in the modification of other cellulosic biomass to afford new biomaterials with desired properties. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
