Chemical characteristics and utilization of ak calotropis procera fibers


, : Chemical characteristics and utilization of ak calotropis procera fibers. Pakistan Journal of Forestry 31(1): 19-25

Two series of Ak samples, one collected at random from 10 different sources at the flowering stage and the other at various stages of maturity, had earlier been studied for a number of physical characteristics. The holocellulose, .alpha.-cellulose, lignin, pentosan and ash contents were determined. Losses due to alcohol-benzene solubility, .alpha.-hydrolysis, .beta.-hydrolysis and acid purification were examined.

The toxicity of C. procera to animals was studied using laboratory mice fed diets containing (a) 0, (b) 10 or (c) 20% C. procera. Diets of pure C. procera caused 100% mortality within 9 days, compared with 40 and 20% mortality with 50 and 25% C. p...
