Towards smart wood-based materials: The natural wood structure is used as a support to graft vinyl and acrylate monomers. The hydroxyls groups from wood are functionalized with azo-based initiators, which can further initiate polymerization in/from the cell wall structure. The versatile technique yields wood-based materials with new functionalities, and opens the way to new utilizations for bulk wood.
