The CHEMARTS Cookbook
Inspiration for Material Enthusiasts
How can we make flexible, transparent wood-based materials? What kinds of materials can we derive from trees, while still respecting the preciousness of nature? Could the innovative use of renewable cellulosic materials change our material world?
The CHEMARTS Cookbook offers both simple and more advanced ideas and recipes for hands-on experiments with wood-based materials. The book showcases interesting results, focusing on raw materials that are processed either chemically or mechanically from trees or other plants: cellulose fibres, micro- or nano-structured fibrils, cellulose derivatives, lignin, bark, and wood extractives.
Find inspiration, test our recipes at home, in workshops or chemistry labs, and develop your own experiments! Have fun!
The ChemArts Cookbook will be available 27/4/2020 from shop.aalto.fi
