A molecular model of individual chains of hemicellulose (blue and red ‘sticks’) interacting with a cellulose microfibril (green surface). The model is part of a newly funded HPC4Manufacturing collaboration between the Alliance for Pulp & Paper Technology Innovation (APPTI), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory aimed at using high performance computing and molecular modeling to increase pulp yield.
