Solvent-controlled modification on lignocellulosic materials via SI-ATRP
May 20-25, 2018
Wood is a biobased material, which can be used for a wide range of applications. It possesses excellent mechanical properties and a hierarchical porous structure designed for fluid transport. The natural origin of wood comes with advantages (readily available scaffold for different applications, highly abundant, and sustainable) and drawbacks (high variability in its structure and chemical composition). The latter represents a challenge when a good control over the desired modification is needed.
