Description: The chemical and structural complexity of wood has made it difficult to understand the details of wood structure, its alteration when modified by chemical, biochemical, or genetic means, and its interaction with adhesives and coatings. This limitation has led us to the develop tools that can better measure nanoscale properties. These tools include methods for two dimensional solution NMR, advanced nanoindentation analysis, and quantization of reactive oxygen species. These tools have been used to evaluate chemical and biochemical processes with wood.
Keywords: Wood chemistry, glue, adhesives, nanotechnology, wood anatomy, nanostructured materials, coatings, genetic analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance, chemical reactions, active oxygen, mechanical properties, nanoindentation, gluing
