ABSTRACT: Chemical constitution of the fibrous material is not the only deciding factor for determining the nature of the pulp that may be made out of it. Much will depend upon the morphological properties, anatomical structure of the raw material and physical properties, in determining the yield and quality of the pulp. The study of wood of Morus Nigra was analyzed for the determination of its constituents and its suitability for pulp and paper manufacture. Physical and chemical analysis of the Morus Nigra species needs special attention while exploring its pulpability and Morus Nigra is analyzed by using TAPPI procedures. Keywords: Pulpability; Fibre Length; Luman Width; Acetyl Content.
