AbstractFibrous holocellulose pulps were prepared in approximately quantitative yield from flax shives and wheat, oat, and fiber flax straw that had been macerated in a buhrstone mill and delignified by sodium chlorite. Paper hand sheets that were formed from pulps subjected to prolonged beating were glassinelike in character. Strength of all straw holocelluloses developed slowly on beating. All papers had relatively low densities compared with the usual values for papers from wood pulps. Tear resistance was initially low for all straw holocelluloses, especially flax shives, and decreased with beating. Color reversion, due almost entirely to light, was rapid in all test sheets. Possible uses for straw holocellulose papers are suggested, although, at present, the process is too expensive to be commercially feasible.
