A multi-scale model for diffusion of large molecules in steam-exploded wood

In this paper, multi-scale modeling was used to resolve diffusion in steam-exploded wood at tracheid scales including sub-micrometer features of bordered pits. Simulations were performed using the lattice Boltzmann method with high-resolution …

Maldi-ToF analysis and FTIR characterization of Aucoumea klaineana Pierre (Okoume) sapwood and heartwood condensed tannins from Gabon’s natural forest

Aucoumea klaineana Pierre (Okoume) tannins were extracted by an artisanal maceration method in the presence of acetone/water used as solvent. The tannins obtained from the sapwood and heartwood and characterized by Maldi-ToF and FTIR did not …

Assessing the natural durability of xylarium specimens: mini-block testing and chemical fingerprinting for small-sized samples

The resistance of wood against fungal decay, in short the natural durability, is one of the main criteria for defining the potential use of a wood species. Wood collections, or xylaria, offer the unique opportunity to screen many specimens and …

Lignin valorization and cleavage of arylether bonds in chemical processing of wood: a mini-review

Lignin valorization is strongly dependent on a right strategy for converting lignin into value-added products. Conversion of lignin into monomeric degradation products is one of the important avenues. In this study, chemical mechanisms and …

Coating cork particles with iron oxide: effect on magnetic properties

The main objective of this research is to develop a technique to obtain magnetic cork particles. The magnetization is achieved by applying a coating of iron oxides, obtained directly on the surface of cork particles from an acid solution of Fe …
