Abstract:This paper reports on a headspace gas chromatographic method (HS-GC) for rapid determination of degree of substitution in succinic anhydride (SA) modified celluloses. The method is based on the reaction between the carboxyl groups in SA modified cellulose and bicarbonate solution in a closed headspace sample vial. The CO(2) released from the reaction was measured by HS-GC. The completion of the reaction was achieved within 25 min at 80 °C when a small sample size (<20 mg) was used. The relative standard deviat…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
