The chemical composition of barrel oak wood

The chemical composition of barrel oak wood

Bulletin de l' OIV 69(785/786): 634-657

A review is presented of the literature about the chemical composition of oak wood used for cooperage. Cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin are present in the proportions of 40, 25 and 25% dry weight. Extractives may make up to 10% of the wood mass.
