Regarding wood and its components, I am a bit partial to water and the role that rascal for a molecule has in wood and its components. One way I to scrutinise this issue is via NMR measurements, my favourite professional pastime (though, mostly on other materials) over the past 30 years. I am also involved a bit in molecular dynamics simulations in collaboration with Jakob Wohlert.
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.
