The composite structure of the S2 layer in the wood cell wall is defined by the angle of the cellulose microfibrils and concentration of polymers and this structure impacts strength and stiffness. The objective of this study was to use near infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction to determine the effect of lignin and cellulose associated wavelengths, microfibril angle, density, and radial position within the tree on strength and stiffness. The aromatic portion of lignin provided a good… CONTINUE READING
