Characterization of water transport in lignocellulosic systems

The aim of the doctoral project is to understand water transport phenomena in lignocellulosic systems better. The focus thereby lies on the characterization of cellulosic dispersions as well as wood-based materials employing state-of-the-art techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM) neutron scattering as well as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
