Department of Forest Resource Chemistry

The Department of Forest Resource Chemistry uses chemical and biological techniques to elucidate the properties of polysaccharides, lignins, and other wood-extracted components when converted into functional materials. By making use of these materials, we develop technologies for material and energy utilization as well as environmental restoration.
