Abstract:
A scheme for producing cellulose from the artic brown algae Fucus vesiculosus and Laminaria digitata was proposed. The physicochemical and structural features of the cellulose samples were studied and compared with those of celluloses from higher plants. Cellulose from Fucus vesiculosus was found primarily in the Iα-form; from Laminaria digitata, the Iα- and Iβ-forms. The studied samples were assumed to contain slightly crystalline cellulose with a structure similar to that of cellulose II. Its content was typically greatest in F. vesiculosus (58%).
