P.W. Lange. The distribution of the chemical constituents throughout the cell wall. In Fundamentals of Papermaking Fibres, Trans. of the Ist Fund. Res. Symp. Cambridge, 1957, (F. Bolam, ed.), pp 147–185, FRC, Manchester, 2018.


This paper is mainly a review of the work of Lange and co-workers (1) on the distribution of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin in the cell wall of Swedish spruce (Picea excelsa), birch (Betula verrucosa) and cotton (Gossypium herbaceum) . Some views on optical methods for micro-analysis of the cell wall and future problems in cell wall chemistry are also included in this article.
