IMPREGNATION OF BIO-OIL FROM SMALL DIAMETER PINE INTO WOOD FOR MOISTURE RESISTANCE
Wood pyrolysis oil consists of hundreds of complex compounds, many of which are phenolic-based and exhibit hydrophobic properties. Southern yellow pine was impregnated with a pyrolysis oil-based penetrant using both a high ...
ASSESSMENT OF PINE BIOMASS DENSITY THROUGH MID-INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY AND MULTIVARIATE MODELING
The assessment of wood biomass density through multivariate modeling of mid-infrared spectra can be useful for interpreting the relationship between feedstock density and functional groups. This study looked at predicting ...
Cellulose Reinforcement of Phenol Formaldehyde: Characterization and Chemometric Elucidation
Micro sized crystalline cellulose was uniformly dispersed at loadings of 0, 3, 6, and 10% (by weight) in phenol formaldehyde (PF) and tested for thermal properties and shear strength. The application of cellulose into the ...
Effect of microcrystalline cellulose, species, and particle size on mechanical and physical properties of particleboard
Particleboards made from both sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) and southern pine (Pinus spp.) were made at a small and large particle size and at 0 and 10% microcrystalline cellulose loading. Modulus of rupture, modulus ...
