Researchers at the University of Maryland have published in the journal Science Advances the extraordinary results obtained in an attempt to make wood transparent and they have fully succeeded. Until today it was possible to obtain the transparency of wood only thanks to the massive use of chemicals but it seems that from now on only hydrogen peroxide, a brush of resin and sunlight are needed to produce the most revolutionary l man could imagine so far.

Transparent wood will allow for windows without heat dispersion and above all acoustically efficient, transparent wood is exactly what was missing in hundreds of applications and above all in sustainable building and energy efficiency.

Transparent wood is stronger and lighter than glass, and has good flexibility, does not break, and lets 90% of light through.
