#336 - Nanotechnology in Biobased/Green Materials (17006)
Papers describing nanotechnological aspects in the wood fiber and paper industries are requested. All applications at the nanoscale will be considered. In particular, papers describing (a)studies of self-assembly and biomimetics applied to the forest products industries, (b) studies of the cell-wall nanostructure, (c) study of cellulosic composites or the composites that are used for forest products (d) analytical methods for nanostructure characterization,(e) nano-bio sensors, (f) nanoscale coatings, fillers, nanocrystals and nano particle retention aids are sought.
