Effects of short-time vibratory ball milling on the shape

Vibratory ball milling is shown to have a strong influence on the shape of FT-IR spectra of wood and cellulose, even if the samples are milled for only a short time. The results show that neither temperature nor particle size or oxidation processes are the most important reason for the observed changes in the structure of the FT-IR spectra, but
