Biofibrernas struktur och funktion
Basic course on morphology, chemical structure, biosynthesis and physical properties of plant fibres and understanding their connection. The course should further give knowledge about chemical reactions during chemical and mechanical pulp manufacturing and how these change the properties of the fibres. The course should also elucidate how fibre properties affect wood based materials as paper, cardboard, plywood, MDF and masonite.
