Identification of non-native cellulose in cellulose-based composites

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

A proposal has been made for a new Standard: "Identification of non-native cellulose in cellulose-based composites."

This method is for identification of non-native cellulose in cellulose-based composites. A scatter plot of the 1095 cm-1 Raman band intensity with rotation angle of the wave plate is indicates that non-native (processed) cellulose has a characteristic scatter plot pattern of two orthogonally intercepting dumbbells. This plot pattern proves to be a signature of non-native cellulose that can be used in this determination.

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 January 30, 2015.
