The studies of the Ia and Ib phases in the primary and secondary walls and their polymorph changes during cell wall synthesis help to discern the in vivo mechanism for cellulose biosynthesis and crystallization. 3 Cotton: Science and technology Strength and crystalline structure relationship Positive relationships between bundle strength by the Stelometer and crystallinity (53% to 69%) have been reported on matured fibers from eight Egyptian cottons (Hindeleh, 1980). However, the relationships between strength and crystallinity may not be easily compared among studies.
