From molecular interactions to macroscopic properties
Treesearch research themes:
“The objective of this research project is to develop a deeper understanding on how chemicals can influence the dry strength of biocomposites, in our case board and tissue. The following parameters will be considered:-Influence of chemistry (mainly polyelectrolytes, PE) on bond and network strength-Influence of PE configuration and loading (charge) on bond and network strength-The limitations of chemistry on bond strength-Influence of pressing and drying-Influence of salt content (inorganic components) and natural polymers (organic components) in the matrix where bonds are formed”
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
