Paper Title:
Preparation of Hydrophobic CaCO3-Wood Composite In Situ
  Abstract

The preparation of hydrophobic CaCO3-wood composite through a double-diffusive method using dodecanoic acid as organic substrate is demonstrated. The product was characterized by the contact angle analysis, X-ray diffraction (XRD), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The mechanical properties of the product were measured. The results show that the synthesized CaCO3 fills in the wood cell and covers the surface of wood. The CaCO3-wood composite is hydrophobic. The mechanical properties of wood composite have significantly increased.
