Structural characterization of cellulose and wood using electron microscopy and elecron diffraction
Treesearch research themes:
Cellulose is an essential constituent in the architecture of plants, where it contributes with extraordinary properties in terms of strength and stiffness. The aim of this project is to enable the development of new materials based on wood and cellulose, through the generation of new understanding regarding its structure all the way from the meso-scale down to the atomic length scales using state-of-the-art methods available in the electron microscope.
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.
