Access from EThOS:
Regenerated cellulosic fibres are known to undergo catalytic decomposition during hydrolytic treatment in Bronsted and Lewis acids. This process is taking place short after the depolymerisation or scission-reordering of the cellulosic macromolecular chains. Depolymerisation is believed to be connected with the less accessible regions of the fibrous structure and leads to a rapid reduction of the fibres' mechanical performance. Enzyme hydrolytic action is cunrrently used as a way of generating wetstate fibrillation to the surface regions of lyocell regenerated cellulosic fabrics.
