Facile preparation of functional hydrogel materials for environmental catalysis is a hot research topic of soft materials science and green catalysis. In this study, a carboxylcellulose hydrogel confined Fe3O4 nanoparticles composite catalyst (Fe3O4@CHC) with magnetic recyclability has been synthesized by taking the advantages of the newly developed cellulose solution in tetramethyl guanidine/DMSO/CO2 through in situ acylation using mixed cyclic anhydrides and ion exchange reaction. The achieved Fe3O4@CHC hydrogel catalyst was shown to be an more efficient and better Fenton-like catalyst for decomposition of the organic dye rhodamine B (RhB) in the presence of hydrogen peroxide, with almost complete decomposition occurring within 180 min, in comparison with Fe3O4@cellulose hydrogel (CH) with excellent recyclability. This work provided a facile strategy for the preparation of hydrogel-based functional composite green catalytic materials, which has potential applications in green catalysis.
