Conformational isomerism of cellulose under incremental stress or strain

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

A proposal has been made for a new Standard: "Conformational isomerism of cellulose under incremental stress or strain."

This method is to determine conformational isomerism of cellulose under incremental stress or strain. Almost all matter, including viscoelastic cellulose, respond to energy changes which almost invariably influence its atomic and or molecular bond characteristics (length, orientation, and geometry). Changes in bonding characteristics of conformationally isomeric cellulose is characterized by variations in the relative amounts of rotamers which has implications on the molecular organization and physical integrity of cellulose that should inform the processing and material application of cellulose.

A Standard-Specific Interest Group (SSIG) must be formed for this proposal. Any individuals who are interested in this Standard may join the SSIG to receive ballots when this method is ready for vote. If you would like to join the SSIG for this project, please notify the Standards Department at no later than December 17, 2014.
