Characterization of cellulose in post-consumer cotton textiles

Article | Free | Jan 01, 2015

The overall objective of this thesis is to provide a background to the recycling of cotton. Since cotton consists of pure cellulose, it might be possible to include used cotton, in the already existing viscose industry. In this thesis two aspects important to accomplishing this task have been studied; changes that occur in cotton fibres during service life, and comparison between cotton and dissolving pulp in terms of susceptibility to acid hydrolysis.
