This paper reports for the first time on the fabrication of honeycomb-patterned cellulose films by casting water in oil emulsion of cellulose acetate onto a glass substrate and subsequent deacetylation treatment. The honeycomb pore size could be controlled from 1 to 100 μm under a saturated water vapor condition. Both cellulose and cellulose acetate films with honeycomb-pattern are expected to be a two-dimensional model of plant cell walls as well as of micro-wells for single cell cultivation.
