Plant Structure And Function - From Biological To Bio-inspired Materials

Thursday, May 23, 2013 12:30p to 1:30p

The talk presents basic principles of structure-function relationships of plants at various hierarchical levels with a specific focus on the micro- and nanoscale of plant cell walls. In particular aspects of the mechanical performance of the cell wall assembly, the hydro-actuation of plant organs and the use of the underlying design principles as bio-inspiration for the improvement of wood materials are highlighted.
The plant cell wall consists of stiff cellulose fibrils embedded in a pliant matrix
