Title:
Arrangement of Cell-Wall Constituents in Chemically Treated Norway Spruce Tracheids 
Abstract:
The cell-wall of tracheids in conifer wood has evolved to provide both water conduction and mechanical strength to the standing tree. However, its structure at the nanometer level is not yet accepted beyond doubt, and little is known about the interactions between the cell-wall components. In the present study, the fracture pattern of the S2 layer of Norway spruce tracheids was observed by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) after pretreatment of the cell wall with various alkal...    »
