The research focuses on developing methods to grow metallic oxides along cellulose crystals as well as three-dimensional cellulose templates. The research mainly involves the utilization of water-based synthesis protocols to investigate hierarchal substructures of inorganic particle materials in the presence of cellulose. The ambition is to enhance the possibility of designing cellulose based hybrid materials with specific properties provided by the inorganic structures as well as to provide new strategies to create inorganic structures suitable for specific applications.
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.
