The development of metrology for nanoparticles is a significant challenge. Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are one group of nanoparticles that have high potential economic value but present substantial challenges to the development of the measurement science. Even the largest trees owe their strength to this newly appreciated class of nanomaterials. Cellulose(More)
S MALL-DIAMETER TREES FROM noncommercial or poorquality stands and residues are generally not used for solid-wood products. This material has also been underutilized as a fiber source for pulping and papermaking, primarily because of marginal economics and process and product problems associated with its use.
