The crystalline content of a range of celluloses has been evaluated by X-ray diffraction and infrared spectroscopy. Chemical derivatization of these materials with trifluoroacetic anhydride in conjunction with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy has been used to measure hydroxyl accessibility. A linear relationship is found between cellulose crystallinity and the rate of hydroxyl labelling.
