This article presents a novel method to selectively probe the non-crystalline, hydrated fractions of cellulosic biomass. The method is based on time-resolved infrared spectra analyzed to provide information on spectral and dynamical features of deuterium exchange (OH -> OD) in D2O atmosphere. We assign deuterium exchange spectral regions (700-3800 cm(-1)) and explore changes due to relative humidity, different cellulosic samples, and infrared polarization. Here, two results are highlighted. First, a wide range of celluloses isolated from plants show remarkable spectral similarities whatever the relative amounts of cellulose and xylan. This result supports an inherent type of hydrated disorder which is mostly insensitive to the molecular identities of the associated polysaccharides. Second, polarized infrared analysis of cotton reveals hydrated cellulose having chains preferentially aligned with those of crystals, while the hydroxyls of hydrated cellulose present much more randomized orientation. Our results provide new insights on molecular and group orientation and on hydrogen bonding in hydrated fractions of cellulosic biomass. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. (AU)
