Near-infrared spectral analysis was useful to quantify the ester content of chemically modified cellulose and lignocellulosics. Two kinds of samples were studied, as long aliphatic-chain cellulose esters and wood sawdust chemically-modified either by anhydrides or by ethylene carbonate. It was possible to determine the degree of substitution (DS) of such samples through a correlation by partial least square (PLS) of second-order derivative of NIR spectra. This technique was efficient even when DS values were low, which is difficult to do by using FTIR. It was also possible to distinguish reagent molecules that were attached to the cellulosic substrate by hydrogen bonding from those linked by covalent bonding.
