AT3: Usage of Cell Wall Components, esp. Hemicelluloses

The official Call for Papers for this session is available here: Call for Papers AT3


This topic area focuses on the usage of cell wall components, especially hemicelluloses. There is much research done in the field of hemicellulose extraction. We want to show in which fields these hemicelluloses can be used, which properties are needed for which usage and how these properties are influenced by the chosen extraction method.

Suggested Topics

Interesting topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Extraction of hemicelluloses

    • Hot water extraction
    • Microwave extraction
    • Other extraction methods

  • Usage of hemicelluloses

    • In the paper industry
    • In the food industry
    • Pharmaceutical
    • As hydrogels
