Regioselectively substituted cellulose cinnamates were synthesized in order to obtain potentially versatile functional materials. The introduced cinnamoyl groups are expected to be photosensitive and electroconductive. At the same time, regioselective substitution may strongly impact derivative properties. Thus, this paper will report the synthesis procedure, and the thermal behaviors of these regioselectively substituted cinnamoyl derivatives.
