    Abstract

    A targeted removal of hemicellulosic components and lignin was carried out using specific enzymes, in order to study the role of these components in the susceptibility of fibres to damage during oxygen delignification. The results were presented in terms of pulp quality numbers after laboratory oxygen bleaching as compared to reference pulp and industrially bleached pulp.
