Herein, flexible, transparent and conductive cellulose hydrogels were directly fabricated by regenerating the chemically cross-linked cellulose in NaCl aqueous solution, without further treatment. NaCl played a dominant role on the mechanical, optical, conductive and anti-freezing properties of cellulose hydrogel, also endowed the hydrogel with safety. After optimization, the transparency, tensile strength, elongation at break and conductivity of the cellulose hydrogel reached 94 % at 550 nm, 5. Read More
