Extractive Profiles in the Production of Sulfite Dissolving Pulp from Eucalyptus Globulus WOOD


The profile of major families of extractives soluble in acetone and dichloromethane during the production of acid sulfite dissolving pulp from Eucalyptus globulus wood was assessed. Nearly 85% of total extractives were removed from wood during pulping and nearly 11% in the course of E-O-P pulp bleaching and secondary pulp screening. Unlike extractives of polyphenolic origin that were almost completely removed after the alkaline extraction stage (E), fatty acids were the main retained component in fully bleached pulp followed by sterols and fatty alcohols. Throughout the bleaching steps, the profiles of extractives were not necessarily decreasing and depended on their reactions with bleaching reagents and the presence of auxiliary chemicals (e.g. antifoams). In this context, the content of fatty acids and fatty alcohols was mostly vulnerable. It has been suggested that Fock reactivity of dissolving pulps is unaffected by extractives at concentrations up to 0.3%.
