This manuscript describes cyclodextrin polymers formed as a thin coating on microcrystalline cellulose. The resulting polymer/cellulose composite shows promising performance for removing organic pollutants from water and can be packed into columns for continuous-flow experiments. The polymer/cellulose composite also shows excellent resistance to aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation.
