Examination of angiosperm primary cell walls by transmission electron microscopy shows that they contain microfibrils that probably consist of cellulose microfibrils surrounded by associated non-cellulosic polysaccharides. Previous studies using solid-state 13C NMR spectroscopy have shown that the cellulose is all crystalline with crystallites of(More)
Solid-state CP/MAS 13C NMR spectroscopy was used to determine the effects of three different sequential extraction procedures, used to remove non-cellulosic polysaccharides, on the molecular ordering of cellulose in a cell-wall preparation containing mostly primary cell walls obtained from the leaves of the model dicotyledon, Arabidopsis thaliana.
