Wood possesses a hierarchical structure from the nanoscale of cell wall polymers up to the macroscale. As a renewable and CO2 storing resource with excellent mechanical properties its thoughtful utilization in advanced materials is highly demanded for a transfer to more sustainable societies. The conference will focus on new approaches for the modification and functionalization of wood, which utilize the sophisticated structure as a scaffold or template.
