Summary : Wood has played a major role throughout human history. Strong and versatile, the earliest humans used wood to make shelters, cook food, construct tools, build boats, and make weapons. Recently, scientists, politicians, and economists have renewed their interest in wood because of its unique properties, aesthetics, availability, abundance, and perhaps most important of all, its renewability. However, wood will not reach its highest use potential until we fully describe it, understand the mechanisms that control its performance properties, and, finally, are able to manipulate those properties to give us the desired performance we seek. The Handbook of Wood Chemistry and Wood Composites analyzes the chemical composition and physical properties of wood cellulose and its response to natural processes of degradation. It describes safe and effective chemical modifications to strengthen wood against biological, chemical, and mechanical degradation without using toxic, leachable, or corrosive chemicals. Expert researchers provide insightful analyses of the types of chemical modifications applied to polymer cell walls in wood. They emphasize the mechanisms of reaction involved and resulting changes in performance properties including modifications that increase water repellency, fire retardancy, and resistance to ultraviolet light, heat, moisture, mold, and other biological organisms. The text also explores modifications that increase mechanical strength, such as lumen fill, monomer polymer penetration, and plasticization. The Handbook of Wood Chemistry and Wood Composites concludes with the latest applications, such as adhesives, geotextiles, and sorbents, and future trends in the use of wood-based composites in terms of sustainable agriculture, biodegradability and recycling, and economics. Incorporating decades of teaching experience, the editor of this handbook is well-attuned to educational demands as well as industry standards and research trends.

Summary : Over the past two decades, there has been a shift in research and industrial practice, and products traditionally manufactured primarily from wood are increasingly combined with other nonwood materials of either natural or synthetic origin. Wood and other plant-based fiber is routinely combined with adhesives, polymers, and other "ingredients" to produce composite materials. Introduction to Wood and Natural Fiber Composites draws together widely scattered information concerning fundamental concepts and technical applications, essential to the manufacture of wood and natural fiber composites. The topics addressed include basic information on the chemical and physical composition of wood and other lignocellulosic materials, the behavior of these materials under thermocompression processes, fundamentals of adhesion, specific adhesive systems used to manufacture composite materials, and an overview of the industrial technologies used to manufacture major product categories. The book concludes with a chapter on the burgeoning field of natural fiber-plastic composites. Introduction to Wood and Natural Fiber Composites is a valuable resource for upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students studying forest products and wood science, as well as for practicing professionals working in operational areas of wood- and natural-fiber processing. For more information on the Wiley Series in Renewable Resources, visit www.wiley.com/go/rrs Topics covered include: Overview of lignocellulosic material, their chemical and physical composition Consolidation behavior of wood and fiber in response to heat and pressure Fundamentals of adhesion Adhesives used to bond wood and lignocellulosic composites Manufacturing technology of major product types Fiber/plastic composites

Summary : Urea formaldehyde (UF) resins are widely used as adhesives for wood-based composites. These thermosetting polymers have advantages of relative low price, fast curing speed, and relative good bonding performance. However, UF resin bonded composites are designed for interior applications due to its weak water resistance. Moreover, traditional prevalent ways for recycling wood-based composites face problems caused by UF resins. In this project, the reuse of cured UF resins was systematically studied. The verification and characterization of crystalline structures in cured UF resins were conducted. The results showed that the crystalline regions were accounted for nearly 14.48% in a typical 1.2 formaldehyde to urea (F/U) molar ratio UF resin. The details of the resin crystalline regions, such as grain sizes and interplanar spacing (d-spacing), were characterized. The crystalline structures, nevertheless, did not affect the UF resin hydrothermal hydrolysis in this study The reuse of cured UF resin was started with a hydrothermal hydrolysis. Under 140 °C and 2 h of hydrothermal process, 20 mL of 30 w.t. % formaldehyde water solution was able to depolymerize up to 1.7 g of cured UF resin. The hydrolyzed formaldehyde solutions were directly used as normal formaldehyde solutions for UF resin synthesis. The synthesized resin (named as UUF resin) contained about 6 w.t. % of cured UF resin and presented similar chemical structures and bonding performance as normal UF resins Hybrid resins made of UUF resin and polymeric 4-4 diphenyl methane diisocyanate (pMDI) were prepared. The pMDI was found evenly dispersed in the hybrid resins by using acetone as its solvent. These hybrid resins resulted in faster curing and stronger bonding performance than pure UUF resins. Furthermore, the hybrid resin was used in a new bonding design, which used southern pine wood radial section features. This design generated finger joint like bonding interfaces by hot pressing two resin coated wood radial sections. The bonding strength and bond line stability were enhanced by this design.
