DescriptionThis chapter represents a summary review and an update of an earlier discussion of the phenomenology of cellulose, together with an overview of recent developments in the chemistry of cellulose. Rather than attempting to integrate the discussions, they will be presented in two separate sections. Part A, by R.H. Atalla, deals with the states of aggregation of celluloses and key structural issues, particularly those with questions of structure still outstanding. Part B, by A. Isogai, presents an overview of recent developments in the chemistry of cellulose, both basic and applied. To minimize the possibility of confusion, the references and figures are numbered consecutively and separately for each of the sections.
