Pitch, an agglomerated complex material formed
by lipophilic wood extractives continues to be a
challenging problem for paper makers. Various
techniques have been used to contribute to the
understanding of its chemical nature and behaviour
under given conditions. This article discusses how
Diffusion Ordered Spectroscopy (DOSY) and
Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy
(ESEM) can contribute to the existing
understanding of pitch behaviour.
