Formic Acid-Peroxyformic Acid Pulping of Aspen Wood: An Optimization Study

S. Abad / V. Santos / J. C. Parajó
Published Online: 2005-06-01 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/HF.2000.092


Populus tremula* Populus tremuloides wood samples were subjected to three-stage pulping in formic acid media with hydrogen peroxide addition, according to the Milox process. By means of three incomplete, second-order, centered, factorial designs, the effects of selected operational variables on the composition and technical properties of pulps were assessed for optimization purposes. Under the best conditions assayed, a pulp with 2.30% lignin, 87.0 % cellulose and 3.25% xylan was obtained at 53.2% pulp yield. Good SCAN viscosity (826 ml/g), reduced Kappa number (9.0) and satisfactory alkaline resistance (R-10 = 89.0; R-18 = 91.0) proved the potentiality of the selected pulp for dissolving pulp production.
