Norway spruce wood was mechanically pulverized to varying degrees. The solubility of the wood samples, in a range of common ionic and molecular solvents, was quantified using a novel 31P NMR technique. The results show that intact wood is not soluble under mild treatment conditions, in cellulose-dissolving or swelling solvents.
