CFNR-Forest Products Chemistry Laboratory

This is a teaching laboratory used by students in wood chemistry, pulp and paper technology and non-timber forest products. This laboratory is capable of doing proximate analysis of wood, bark and other lignocellulosic materials, nanocellulose production using acid hydrolysis and mechanical refining, and other chemical tests of pulp. The laboratory also supports the conduct of externally-funded research as well as thesis work of undergraduate BS Forestry, BS Chemical Engineering (Major in Pulp and Paper Technology), and BS Agricultural Chemistry students and graduate students in MS/PhD programs.
