Besides neocarmine, oxycarmine is a rapidly applicable detection reagent for the simple and unambiguous detection of oxycellulose formation on natural plant fibres. Unlike other indicators, oxycarmine reacts only with oxycellulose and not with hydrocellulose. With oxycarmine, the indication takes place in a two-step process. The fabric samples are treated successively in the two different oxycarmine solutions. The oxycellulose can subsequently be recognised by a dark, blue-violet colour, while the undamaged fibre remains white.
