A fundamental study was undertaken to determine the general role of heteropolysaccharides during the production of TEMPO-oxidized cellulose nanofibrils (TOCNs). Four major fiber resources, viz., fully bleached kraft pulps of softwood and hardwood varieties (pine, eucalyptus) and non-woods (bamboo, bagasse) were used because of their substantial(More)
This article describes a novel one-step method to prepare cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) from bleached bagasse pulp via ammonium persulfate (APS) oxidation. The obtained persulfate oxidation cellulose nanocrystals (POCNs) were characterized for their microstructure, crystal properties, and chemical composition. The POCNs were successfully prepared with a(More)
