A series of one-stage oxygen delignification treatments with a softwood (SW) kraft pulp were studied employing 0.0-0.5% of a bismuth ruthenium pyrochlore oxide catalyst. The results demonstrated that a 0.09-0.18% charge of catalyst in an oxygen stage provided a 52.2-116.0% increase of carboxylic acid groups in the cellulosic component of kraft pulps without a significant decrease in fiber viscosity. A 3-factor at 3-level (L(9)3(3)) orthogonal experimental design was used to identify the main factors influencing acid group formation in pulp carbohydrates. The relative significance of experimental parameters for polysaccharide acid group formation was the molar equivalent NaOH, oxygen pressure, and finally, reaction temperature under the experimental conditions studied. The optimized reaction parameters for fiber charge development were shown to be 85-100 degrees C, 2.5% NaOH, and 800-960 kPa oxygen pressure. Pulps with higher fiber carboxylic acid content introduced by catalytic oxidation during oxygen delignification yielded a 10.9-33.7% increase in fiber charge after elemental chlorine free (ECF) pulp bleaching. The enhanced fiber charge resulted in 6.7-17.1% increase in paper sheet tensile index at comparable pulp viscosity.
