Abstract

Microtensile investigations were carried out on chemically and mechanically isolated fibres that had similar dimensions before isolation. The properties calculated for the fibres were nearly identical for the two isolation methods. However, cell wall cross-sections of chemically isolated fibres shrank much more transversely than those of the mechanically isolated fibres.
