NMR is one of the major spectroscopic techniques for studying supramolecular organization on an atomic level and water-interactions of lignocellulosic materials. With this webinar series, Treesearch aims to inspire and show what can be determined from NMR studies.
In a series of webinars, experts are sharing their knowledge on different aspects of NMR. The webinars are open for all to attend and links are found directly on this page.

December 13, 15:00 – 16:00 CET
Adj. Prof. Tomas Larsson, KTH / RISE
Tomas Larsson is well renowned for his work on structural understanding and how physical and chemical treatment affects cellulose fibrils and fibril aggregates in the fibre wall. He has a unique holistic perspective of the fibre that has grown from an in-depth knowledge on how to perform mathematical analysis of data generated from CP/MAS 13C-NMR, X-ray scattering, FSP and carbohydrate composition. In this webinar he will present on the use of solid-state NMR for studying the supramolecular structure of cellulose.
In 2017 PT Larsson was awarded SPCIs Ekman medallion for his work on cellulose
