The bleaching conditions for the reference pulps and for all the other
experiments, including reaction time, reaction temperature, and chemical
dosage, are presented in Table 3. When calculating the bleaching chemical
dosages for the following bleaching stage, it was assumed that there were no
yield losses. Only the amount of the pulp used for defining dry matter content
and ISO brightness were deducted from the original amount of pulp. However,
the yield losses were taken into account when calculating the bleaching
