  1. 1. Wettability of modified wood

    Författare :Maziar Sedighi Moghaddam; Agne Swerin; M. Per Calessson; E.P. Magnus Wålinder; Callum Hill; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wood; dimensional stability; dynamic wettability; surface chemistry; microstructure; swelling; multicycle Wilhelmy plate method; contact angle; sorption; acetylation; furfurylation; surface modification; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Despite many excellent properties of wood which make it suitable for many applications, it suffers from a number of disadvantages limiting its use. For instance, modification is needed to reduce water sorption and to improve decay resistance, dimensional stability and weathering performance. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Hemicelluloses are a group of heterogeneous polysaccharides representing around 30 % of wood where the dominating types are xylans, glucomannans and xyloglucans. Hemicelluloses complex molecular structure makes it difficult to understand the relationship between structure and properties entirely, and their biological role is not yet fully verified. LÄS MER
