I actually know nothing about nano-cellulose except that it is composed of nano-fibers that can be used in inter-locking strength in the formula.
EDIT: Plus, hydrolysis is only in equilibrium reactions, meaning you would have to form a precipitate in order to get the stuff anyway, or make it into a gas. You would have to make one side of the reaction favored in order to do that.
Example of a hydrolysis reaction, using acetic acid with WATER to form the conjugates hydronium and acetate ions.
CH3COOH + H2O ↔ CH3COO− + H3O+
Oh, tanks. BTW what material are you using for tubing and stuff for you shooter, cause I can't find one that won't melt in acetone
