Physical Chemistry


  1. 1.

    The reaction of N2O4 with cellulose tri-, di-, and mononitrates containing various amounts of sorbed water has been studied.

  2. 2.

    The reaction of cellulose nitrates with N2O4 leads to denitration with the formation of COOH groups at C6 and OH groups at C2 and C3.

  3. 3.

    Monocarboxycellulose and mononitratocarboxycellulose have been obtained from cellulose trinitrate.

  4. 4.

    A scheme of the chemical conversions taking place during the reaction of cellulose nitrates and cellulose with N2O4 has been discussed.
