Abstract:

The enzymic hydrolysis of sulfite fibers has been studied under the microscope. A substantial loss of material was observed with a fiber that had not been dried, whereas moderate hydrolysis occurred to a fiber dried at room temperature, and almost no attack to a fiber that had been dried at 120C for three hours. The hydrolysis started in the vicinity of damaged parts of the fiber and spread into the fiber wall. Author
