Irreversible transformations of native celluloses, upon exposure to elevated temperatures.


Current research, basic and applied, assumes that observed recalcitrance of celluloses is an inherent characteristic associated with their state of aggregation in their native state; it is thought that processes of isolation remove other components of plant cell walls leaving the celluloses unchanged, even though elevated temperatures are routinely used… (More)
