The swelling behaviour of the cell wall was examined as sprucewood was progressively cooked to lower yields by the sulphite and kraft processes. This was done by determination of the accessibility of the cell wall to water-soluble macromolecules of different sizes. These measurements allowed the calculation of the volume of the water-swollen wall and the distribution of water among pores of different sizes. With respect to cell wall dimensions it was found that both pulping processes could be… CONTINUE READING
