An overview of the chemical characterisation of wood and paper products. The course covers the application of modern analytical methods for packaging materials as well as paper and wood products. The emphasis of the analysis is set on the influence of the chemical composition on the usage of the materials. The principles of the methods are covered qualitatively. The applications are examined from the perspective of both the production and the researcher.
