Water retention values of cotton linters and viscose wood pulp treated with different concentrations of NaOH, in the pretreatment step during xanthation, are studied. The effect of graft copolymerization of acrylamide onto coton linters and viscose wood pulp by using xanthate method on water retention values is illustrated. The results show that a lower concentration of NaOH has a slight effect on water retention values. It is found also that water retention values are affected not only by the… CONTINUE READING
