Biomaterial Science University of Tsukuba
Fundamentals and applications of paper science and papermaking engineering will be provided and they cover chemical structures of polysaccharides constituting fibers, pulping methods for extracting fibers from wood, papermaking technology such as beating, forming, calendering and coating, and geometrical, mechanical, optical, water-related properties of paper as well as biomass plastics to replace petroleum- resourced plastics and latest research topics.
Students will be engaged in achieving a basic knowledge of biomaterial by learning the major components of wood and how to process wood to convert to paper.
This coursework links up with biological, chemical and technological knowledge of pulping and papermaking.
Students will be expected to have successfully completed Polymer Chemistry prior to enrollment in this course.
