Proton magnetic relaxation study of the thermodynamic characteristics of water adsorbed by cellulose fibers


The possibility of determining the thermodynamic parameters that characterize the sorption properties of cellulose and the state of water associated with its fibers is demonstrated using modern concepts of the structure of this vegetable polymer and methods based on theories of adsorption and NMR relaxation in heterogeneous systems.
