Abstract [en]

In the present research the mechanism of colour formation in the bleached kraft pulps was studied based on the accelerated ageing experiments with industrial bleached pulps and cellulose samples doped with a number of model compounds: 2-furancarboxylic acid (FA), 5-formyl-2-furancarboxylic acid (FFA) and reductic acid (RA) in combination with Fe2+ or Fe3+ ion. The choice of the model compounds was based on the fact that they were detected in the ethanol extracts of aged industrial pulps. It was shown that the mechanism of thermal yellowing consist of several stages, including the degradation of hexenuronic acid and formation of reactive precursors, such as FFA and RA, which then take part in reactions leading to colour formation. The formation of FFA and RA is the rate-limiting stage in the discoloration of pulps. FA had basically no influence on the yellowing. The effect of Fe ions on the colour formation appears to vary with their oxidation state. The presence of Fe2+ in combination of FFA, and especially, with RA has been shown to facilitate the colour formation, whereas Fe3+ seems to suppress the discoloration caused by the FFA or RA.
