This course exposes the students to experiments concerning the pulp bleaching process, involving the chemical calculation and the resultant pulp and paper properties analysis, determination of paper (physical, mechanical and optical) properties and starch content of commercial paper products, and effects of pH and beating on recycled paper properties.

Experiments involved are: Experiment 1: Determination of Paper Properties for Various types of commercial papers (3 hours) Experiment 2: Pulp Bleaching (Mini project- 12 hours) Experiment 3: Quantitative Determination of Starch in Paper (4 hours) Experiment 4: Effect of pH and beating on Repulping (6 hours)

Skill Level: Beginner
