Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)
Description: With increasing interest in bio-based adhesives, research on proteins has expanded because historically they have been used by both nature and humans as adhesives. A wide variety of proteins have been used as wood adhesives. Ancient Egyptians most likely used collagens tobond veneer to wood furniture, then came casein (milk), blood, fish scales, and soy adhesives, with soybeans and caseins being important for the development of the plywood and glulam industries. Despite many years of research on developing adhesive products, it is not clear how the proteins provide good adhesive strength, but some thoughts are expressed here.
