Chemical Imaging of Poplar Wood Cell Walls by Confocal Raman Microscopy
Confocal Raman microscopy was used to illustrate changes of molecular composition in secondary plant cell wall tissues of poplar (Populus nigra × Populus deltoids) wood. Two-dimensional spectral mapsExpand

Imaging of plant cell walls by confocal Raman microscopy
Raman imaging of plant cell walls represents a nondestructive technique that can provide insights into chemical composition in context with structure at the micrometer level (<0.5 μm). The majorExpand

Stress generation in the tension wood of poplar is based on the lateral swelling power of the G-layer.
The mechanism of active stress generation in tension wood is still not fully understood. To characterize the functional interdependency between the G-layer and the secondary cell wall, nanostructuralExpand

A reconsideration of the relationship between the crystallite size La of carbons determined by X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy
Abstract Non-graphitic carbon materials produced by pyrolyzing wood at temperatures from 400 to 2400 °C and various types of commercial carbon fibers were examined by X-ray diffraction and RamanExpand

Insights into the chemical composition of Equisetum hyemale by high resolution Raman imaging
Equisetaceae has been of research interest for decades, as it is one of the oldest living plant families, and also due to its high accumulation of silica up to 25% dry wt. Aspects of silicaExpand

Tensile and compressive stresses in tracheids are induced by swelling based on geometrical constraints of the wood cell
Plants are able to pre-stress their tissues in order to actuate their organs. Here, we demonstrate with two tissue types of the secondary xylem of conifers (normal wood and compression wood of spruceExpand
