Properties of Esterificated Wood with Oxalic Acid and Cetyl Alcohol

Abstract:

Article Preview

Two-step for wood esterification with oxalic acid and cetyl alcohol is developed in this study. The esterified wood powder was investigated by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results show that ester groups substituted parts of the original alcoholic hydroxyl groups, and crystallization occurred during the modification. In addition, surface wettability, moisture adsorption and water absorption tests for wood specimen have showed that the modification improves the moisture and water resistance.
