The peak position indicated disorder in the acetylated cellulose because of the replacement of hydroxyl groups by acetyl, which is associated with increased interfibrillar distance and disrupture of microfibrillary structures [49].
Alkali treatment removes all the noncellulosic impurities, so microgaps may be increased due to the removal of interfibrillar matrix material, such as lignin and pectin.
Such extreme environments provide a unique platform to break the strong cellulose interfibrillar hydrogen bonding, allowing nanofibers to be gradually disintegrated [24, 27].

Cardiac tissue is rich in mitochondria with spatially distinct subpopulations: subsarcolemmal mitochondria (SSM), located beneath the cell membrane, and interfibrillar mitochondria (IFM), situated between the myofibrils.
(f) In high-resolution, the characteristic 67 nm cross-striated pattern of collagen fibrils (white arrows) can be observed, with accumulation of intra- and interfibrillar mineral.
In addition, the cornea suffers changes in its shape and optical properties, including corneal steepening measurable by keratometry and a shift in toricity from with-the-rule to againstthe-rule astigmatism and increased collagen interfibrillar spacing, as well as an increased thickness of Descemet's membrane [4].
Thus, the sonification impact breaks the relatively weak cellulose interfibrillar hydrogen bonding and the Van der Waals force, gradually disintegrating the microscale cellulose fibres into nanofibers.
Among the more well-characterized mitochondrial types within a single tissue are two cardiac mitochondrial subpopulations, subsarcolemmal mitochondria (SSM) and interfibrillar mitochondria (IFM).
IFM: interfibrillar mitochondria are arranged along the myofibrils; SSM: subsarcolemmal mitochondria.
