Studies on the holocellulose of Sitka spruce : methylation of spruce holocellulose Martin, Arthur James
Sitka Spruce holocellulose has been prepared by the chlorite procedure as modified by Wise and associates. This material has been subjected to successive methylations. The methoxyl content and yield of the solid residue were determined after each methylation and the methoxyl contents have been compared with corresponding values obtained when extractive-free wood was treated in the same manner. The methoxyl contents and yields of material present in the liquors from the first methylation have also been determined.
