Prospects of Using Commercial Cellulose Types to Make Products with a High Added Value

The paper presents the results of research in which powdered cellulose technologies are considered using commercial hardwood bleached sulfate pulp as a raw material. The morphological and chemical properties of powdered and fibrillar cellulose samples are given. The dependence of the properties of the obtained products on the manufacturing method is shown. For comparison and evaluation of the effectiveness of the process of dispersion and hydrolysis, the properties of commercial fibrillar and microcrystalline cellulose have been studied.
