Reactions of carbohydrates – acid sulphite pulping Because of the sensitivity of glycosidic linkages towards acid hydrolysis, the most prominent reaction of polysaccharides during acid sulphite and bisulphite pulping is the cleavage of glycosidic bonds between the monosaccharide moieties in the hemicellulose components, giving rise to monosaccharides and soluble oligosaccharide and polysaccharide fragments.1-4 Hemicelluloses also in
