In the present work ionic liquid has been used for the regeneration of cellulose from waste writing paper. The regenerated cellulose was characterized by TGA, FTIR and XRD analyses. Kinetics of thermal degradation of this cellulose was carried out under dynamic condition using thermogravimetry. Coats-Redfern kinetic model was used to determine the kinetic parameters for the degradation process. The activation energy for the thermal degradation of the regenerated cellulose has been found to be less than the precursor waste paper.
