Paper Abstract

Molecular mechanics simulations have been used to study the deformation and mechanical properties of crystalline cellulose II. Good agreement was achieved with the experimental lattice parameters, bond lengths and angles, and hydrogen bond network. Auxetic (negative Poisson' ratio) behaviour was predicted in the y-z plane in crystalline cellulose II, in agreement with experiment.
