AN INVESTIGATION OF THE STRUCTURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF MODIFIED CELLULOSE FROM ACACIA PULP
Keywords:Structural characteristics, modified cellulose, acacia pulp
AbstractThe structural characteristics of the modified celluloses from acacia pulp in Vietnam were investigated and compared to others. The total crystalline index (TCI), the lateral order index (LOI) and the hydrogen bond intensity (HBI) were evaluated by the FTIR. The size of crystallites were considered by XRD. The TCI, LOI and HBI of modified acacia cellulose I are found. The crystalline size of modified acacia cellulose I and cellulose II are found.
