This paper presents an efficient method for extracting cellulose and cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) from waste cotton stalks. The chemical composition, crystallization, spectroscopic, thermal and morphological analyses of the cotton stalks in every step were performed by relevant tests. Results indicated that the cotton stalks, which were treated by 12.5% sodium hydroxide concentration at 160 °C for 1 hour, retained the highest contents of cellulose (68.5%), while maintaining the cellulosefatcat:gyk5puwajffsphsdeatjznrf2m
