I am trying to prepare nanocellulose esters via esterification with Tartaric acid. I know that the traditional method employs a strong acid such as sulfuric acid. What would the process look like in this case? Also, can the esters be prepared without a catalyst by increasing the rate of reaction by increasing the temperature?
