A method for the ultrastructural investigation of fiber cross-sections based on atomic force microscopy in combination with image analysis is presented. A uniform distribution of pores across the matrix material within the fiber wall was revealed by impregnation of pulp fibers with poly(ethylene glycol). The effects of chemical and mechanical processing on the pore and matrix structure and on the arrangement of the cellulose fibril aggregates were investigated. During chemical processing… CONTINUE READING
