Abstract:The reactions of wheat-straw (Triticum aestivum) cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin with a mixture of nitric and trifluoroacetic acids and certain properties of the nitration products were studied for straw directly and for structural components isolated from it. The nitration products could be separated into nitrates of structural polysaccharides and nitrolignin by treatment with hot bases.
