Nir and wood, sounds good!

A workshop dedicated to the application of Near Infrared (Nir) Spectroscopy for wood science and technology will take place on April, 15 in San Michele all’Adige (Trento). Organized by Cnr-Trees and Timber Institute (Ivalsa), the seminar aims at demonstrating that this method is a promising alternative to several traditional analytical techniques.

Researchers will illustrate their experiences in various application fields, such as: wood science, tree breading, biomass/bio-energy, timber construction, cultural heritage, wood service life and industrial applications. Advantages and limits will be discusses. The workshop will be platform for ideas exchange, promotion and joint projects between Nir experts and researchers and practitioners in the field of wood.

Recent developments in the fields of optics and electronics opened nowadays new possibilities for measurements of various physical and chemical properties of materials. Techniques previously limited to few specialized applications are currently available and in combination with appropriate data managing procedures, offers an effective analytical tool.

Fourier Transform Near Infrared Spectroscopy (Ft-Nir) is relatively young technique, but even that it is more and more utilized in various fields. The most important applications include chemical industry, food and beverages, pharmaceutical analysis, microanalysis, polymers, surface science, petrochemistry, textile industry, art conservation, forensics, process control quality and also wood and paper industry.

First call for contribution expires on February, 15 2014. Send your abstract to sandak@ivalsa.cnr.it
