Understanding the influence of key parameters on the stabilisation of cellulose-lignin composite fibres

The high cost of carbon fibre continues to limit its use in industries like automotive, construction and energy. Since the cost is closely linked to the precursor, considerable research has focussed on the use of low-cost alternatives. A promising …

Evaluation of cellulose paper degradation irradiated by an electron beam for conservation treatment

In this study, we investigate the chemical, physical and optical properties of cellulose paper irradiated by an electron beam for disinfection. Cellulose chain scission and oxidation induced by radiation increased considerably at 25 kGy …

Influence of cross-section shape on structure and properties of Lyocell fibers

Three kinds of Lyocell fibers with different cross-sections including circular, H-shape, and Y-shape (abbreviated as O-, H-, and Y-Lyocell) were prepared by a dry-jet wet spinning method. The effects of cross-sectional shape on structure and …

Effect of boric acid on the stabilisation of cellulose-lignin filaments as precursors for carbon fibres

The increasing demand for a low-cost and renewable carbon fibre precursor has driven the focus on bio-based precursors. Cellulose-lignin composite fibres are a new approach toward this direction. The combination of cellulose and lignin into a …

Modified Lyocell process to improve dissolution of cellulosic pulp and pulp blends in NMMO solvent

Cellulose is one of the most abundant natural biopolymers on earth with many applications. However, unlike synthetic polymers cellulose cannot be melted as its melting temperature is higher than its degradation temperature. Hence the alternative …

About this journal

Cellulose is an international journal devoted to the dissemination of research and scientific and technological progress in the field of cellulose and related naturally occurring polymers. The journal is concerned with the pure and applied science of cellulose and related materials, and also with the development of relevant new technologies. This includes the chemistry, biochemistry, physics and materials science of cellulose and its sources, including wood and other biomass resources, and their derivatives. Coverage extends to the conversion of these polymers and resources into manufactured goods, such as pulp, paper, textiles, and manufactured as well natural fibers, and to the chemistry of materials used in their processing. Cellulose publishes review articles, research papers, and technical notes.
