TECHNOLOGY OF OBTAINING ARTIFICIAL SILK
Glossary of terms
About 20 g of copper hydrogencarbonate is dissolved in a 25% solution of ammonia by the route of its gradual addition to the salt also with constant stirring. Copper ammonium solution is added to the medical cotton wool in small portions and mixed until the fiber is completely dissolved, also obtaining a viscous mass.
Dissolution of cotton wool moves slowly, so the experiment can be postponed for 1-3 days. to obtain artificial filament yarn, a copper ammoniacal solution of the fiber is taken into a medical syringe and extruded through a needle immersed in a precipitation solution, which is a 10-15% solution of sulfuric or hydrochloric acid .
