The Basic Properties of Lightweight Woods and the Study of Aerogel-Type Wood
Based on the fast-growing and abundant lightwood as ground mass, the study applies the formation principle of aerogel, uses such low-carbon treatment technologies as sol-gel method, Lowry method and supercritical drying method, prepares and forms an environment-friendly aerogel-type wood. The result of study shows that the new type of material not only has the natural biological structure of wood, but also has some fine features of aerogel, and is easily accepted by the environment.
