The aim of this work was to study the solubility of chemical pulps and the effects of ZnO and NaOH concentrations on the solution properties. The pulps were mechanically shredded, pretreated using cellulase, and dissolved directly into aqueous sodium zincate. The solubility of pulp was observed visually by a microscope, and the viscosities of solutions were measured by a rotational rheometer and a ball-drop method.
