The reagents were obtained commercially and used without further purification. Cellulose fiber, medium, was obtained from Sigma-Aldrich. 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectra were recorded on a Bruker Avance 300 MHz NMR spectrometer using TMS as the internal standard. Chemical shifts are given in parts per million (δ) and coupling constants (J) in Hz. MS data was obtained on Hewlett Packard HP 5973 quadrupole Mass Selective Detector with interface for 6890 series GC. Thin-layer chromatography (TLC) was performed on silica gel 60 F254 precoated glass plates.
