Cellulose fibre

produced from cellulose. Its fibre-forming substance is created by regenerated cellulose or derivative cellulose. In the group of c. f. from regenerated cellulose we can count cupric fibres, which are produced from cellulose dissolved in an ammonia solution of cupric hydroxide, viscose fibres, which are produced from cellulose xanthate dissolved in a solution of sodium hydroxide, and saponified acetate fibres, which are produced from extended acetate fibres in a saponified solution, sodium hydroxide and sodium acetate. The group of derivative cellulose fibres comprises diacetate fibre, which is produced from acetate cellulose, and triacetate fibre, which is produced from acetate fibre. Cellulose fibres are an important raw textile material; in the mid 20th century they accounted for a large proportion of chemical fibre production. In recent times, however, they have been overtaken by synthetic fibres, which have better qualities for certain purposes.
