Transmission Electron Microscopy for Wood and Fiber Analysis − A Review

  title={Transmission Electron Microscopy for Wood and Fiber Analysis − A Review},
  author={Mehedi Reza and Eero Kontturi and A. J{\"a}{\"a}skel{\"a}inen and Tapani Vuorinen and Janne T Ruokolainen},
This review describes use of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) in wood and fiber analysis. Analytical techniques and sample preparation methods are used to localize substructures of the cell wall polymers and are discussed in this review. The ultrastructural features of the wood cell walls, the structures formed by microfibrils, and the distribution of cell wall polymers, as revealed by TEM, are covered. Research investigating the distribution of lignin in tension and compression woods… CONTINUE READING
