Volume 39.1 of the journal Textiles Progress, this book presents a critical review of the recent research work and development on ramie, a long vegetable bast fiber. Divided into two parts, the text first discusses the progress of recent work on ramie; chemical components, such as fiber degumming; its effects on fiber composition; and chemical constituents, including hemicellulose, cellulose, and noncellulosic and mineral matters. It then focuses on various chemical properties of native and modified fibers, including accessibility, infrared, cellulose I-V, DP, grafting, cross linking, and resin finishing and dyeing.
