Defence of doctoral thesis: Patric Kvist – Diffusion of large molecules in steam-exploded wood

Chalmers Opponent: Lennart Salmén, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden Welcome to take part of the dissertation at Chalmers. Abstract The diffusion of large molecules in wood pre-treated with steam explosion is important to understand in the context of the materials biorefinery. Steam explosion is a pretreatment method used to both open up the internal structure …
