T. Lindström. Some fundamental chemical aspects on paper forming. In Fundamentals of Papermaking, Trans. of the IXth Fund. Res. Symp. Cambridge, 1989, (C.F. Baker & V. Punton, eds), pp 311–412, FRC, Manchester, 2018


The fundamental physico-chemical aspects of retention chemistry are reviewed in the light of basic concepts in colloid chemistry.

Special emphasis has been paid to the surface chemistry of cellulose and cellulosic materials, their origin of charge, dispersion force interactions as well as the implication of certain aspects of peculiar cellulosic surfaces, e.g. the influence of their porosity on polymer adsorption.

Charge neutralization, patch flocculation, heterocoagulation, bridging and complex flocculation phenomena are discussed as well as polymer adsorption phenomena at the cellulose/water interface
