DescriptionMechanical, chemical, and light microscopic methods were used to observe wood cell wall changes during colonization by Ceriporiopsis submervispora. Maximum crushing load, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and quantitative Simon’s staining were found to be the most useful methods for tracking biopulping action. MOE and loss modulus trended downward within 2 days of inoculation, even though few cells were colonized by that time. Quantitative Simon’s staining results were highly correlated with refiner energy savings.
