On the basis of the Brandt-Ritchie model, we use the calculated Valence Band Density Of electronic States to explain the selectivity of the chemical modifications induced by ion irradiation in cellulose nitrate and cellulose acetate. Somes consequences pertaining to the characteristics of the valence band structure are deduced with a view to electronic applications.
