Structure characterization of bacterial cellulose during dehydration process

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The structure of bacterial cellulose has been extensively studied by X-ray diffraction and other techniques. Most of the previous X-ray diffraction experiments have used freeze-dried and air-dried samples. In this study, a standard method using X-ray diffraction with a two-dimensional detector to monitor the crystal structure changes during the native cellulose dehydration process is established. The orientation of cellulose crystals during dehydration was also investigated.
