Experimental and Theoretical Study of the Yellowing of Ancient Paper
e-Journal of Surface Science and Nanotechnology
Paper is the most widely used writing support due to the remarkable properties of its principal componentcellulose -one of the most abundant biomaterials present on Earth. However, due to the complexity of the material, an exhaustive picture of its degradation pathways is still missing. In this paper, we will present recent results and progresses obtained in the comprehension of the role of cellulose oxidation in the yellowing of ancient paper.
