As we choose a Christmas tree to adorn our homes for the festive season it is worth remembering that wood is an immensely rich resource with a fascinating chemistry. With this in mind it makes sense to make the most of this valuable material and to use wood and other biological resources in a smart way.
In this lecture, Professor Matthew Davidson from University of Bath's Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies will discuss how such valuable resources, in particular the terpenes that trees produce, offer the potential to develop a wide range of renewable products from fine chemicals to biofuels.
