Abstract: Although perfectly diagnosed in terms of the occurrence of physical changes, the hornification phenomenon, in its origin, has frequently been associated with the formation of irreversible or partially reversible hydrogen bonding in wood pulps or paper upon drying or water removal. Its characterisation has therefore been confusing and unsatisfactory. The authors propose that a sufficiently varied source of experimental data already exists to show that hornification is only a particular case of lactone bridge formation in lignocellulosic materials.
