A high accessibility is an essential prerequisite for a homogeneous substitution of cellulose material. In this study, chemical and enzymatic pretreatments to increase the accessibility of cellulose materials have been investigated. Dissolving pulp has been treated with a monocomponent endoglucanase. Fock's method, a microscale process similar to the viscose process, showed an increase in cellulose yield.
Simultaneously, the viscosity decreased. To clarify whether the increase in reactivity was due solely to the decrease in the degree of polymerization, the dissolving pulp was also subjected to acid hydrolysis. At a given viscosity level, the enzymatic pretreated pulp had a higher reactivity than the pulp subjected to acid hydrolysis. A monocomponent endoglucanase can thus be used to increase the reactivity and accessibility of dissolving pulp in the viscose process.

Technical Field The present invention generally relates to pulp processing and more specifically to an alternative pulp and methods of producing the same. Dissolving pulp is a bleached wood pulp that has a high cellulose content, e. It is typically bleached to a high level of brightness and has specific properties, such as a uniform molecular weight distribution.
It is called dissolving pulp because it is not made into paper but dissolved into a solvent or otherwise made into a homogeneous solution which can then be spun to produce textile fibres or further chemically reacted to produce a wide range of cellulose derivatives. Many wood species can be used to produce dissolving pulp, however pine and eucalypt species are predominantly used today. The majority of dissolving pulp is produced from hardwood species primarily due to availability, density, cost and relative ease of delignification.Thank you for visiting nature.
The effect of xylanase treatment on pulp bleaching is well-established, however, few studies were conducted on the effects of xylanase treatment in pulp yellowing, especially the mechanism of pulp yellowing inhibition by xylanase treatment.
In this study, pure xylanase EC 3. The xylanase treatment decreased the post-color number of the pulps during light- and heat-induced yellowing. The changes in chemical components of pulps after the xylanase treatment, for example, lignin, hemicellulose, and HexA contents, and analysis of UV—vis absorption spectra and Fourier transform infrared-attenuated total reflectance spectrum were used to explore the pulp yellowing inhibition causes by the xylanase treatment.
As a high-level consumer of lignocellulosic resources, the papermaking industry should urgently expand its sources of raw material and improve its practical utilization of raw materials, especially in countries characterized by wood shortage, such as China 2. Abundant non-wood materials with high annual yields per hectare and low cost of wheat straw and reed, for example, are raw materials well-suited to the pulp industry 2345.
Straw is the most commonly utilized non-wood material in the pulp and papermaking industry. High-yield pulps HYPssuch as chemi-thermo-mechanical pulp CTMPhave been rapidly developed because of low cost and improved wood utilization 7.
Compared with chemical pulps, HYP fibers offer distinct papermaking advantages including bulk, opacity, stiffness, and printability 89 In addition, HYP fibers can fully replace chemical pulps in certain high-value products. In general, pulp yellowing includes both light- and heat-induced yellowing.
Pulps easily become yellow when exposed to daylight, indoor illumination, or high temperatures. For chemical pulps, heat-induced yellowing is the main form of brightness reversion. Lignin residues, carbonyl groups, xylan, hexenuronic acid HexA groups, and transition metal ions are involved in the yellowing reactions 13 Residual lignin, the products of polysaccharide chain thermal decay and xylan are the main although debatable causes for heat-induced yellowing of chemical pulps Light-induced yellowing is principally associated with lignin-rich pulps i.
HYP discoloration is dominated by lignin-based reactions including the ketyl, phenoxyl, and phenacyl pathways, phenoxyl quinone redox cycle, and stilbene photodegradation 1617 Quinones and other chromogenic substances are produced through these pathways. Many previous researchers have made valuable progress in methods of inhibiting pulp yellowing. UV absorbers have been proven to be particularly efficient. McGarry et al. Fluorescent whitening agents are another type of substance that can be applied to slow down pulp yellowing 20and studies have shown that chemical modification and paper coating are also effective methods of inhibiting yellowing
