Confocal Raman microscopy was used for chemical imaging of wood cell wall polymers and to follow molecular changes during tensile deformation. Spectral maps were acquired from cross-sections of poplar wood and images calculated by integrating the intensity of characteristic spectral bands. This enabled direct visualisation of the spatial variation of the lignin content without any chemical treatment or staining of the cell wall. A higher lignin content was visualised in the cell corners, the… CONTINUE READING
