Chemical modification of wood for improved decay resistance


Wood Science 15(2): 81-89
Chemical modification of wood for improved decay resistance
Matched southern pine sapwood blocks were chemically modified with various isocyanates and isothiocyanates in the presence of refluxing pyridine. The results of N analysis, IR spectra and wt. gains of up to 15% indicated that methyl isocyanate and allyl isocyanate reacted readily with wood to form the carbamate (urethane) derivatives. Allyl isothiocyanate appeared to form a polymer; other isothiocyanates did not react readily.
