In this study, structure changes of regenerated cellulose fibers wet-spun from a cotton linter pulp (degree of polymerization approximately 620) solution in an NaOH/urea solvent under different conditions were investigated by simultaneous synchrotron wide-angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD) and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). WAXD results indicated that the increase in flow rate during spinning produced a better crystal orientation and a higher degree of crystallinity, whereas a 2-fold increase… CONTINUE READING
