About this book

This volume emphasizes the growing need for wood products with advanced engineering properties. It details the fundamental principles of cellulose technology and presents current techniques to modifying the basic chemistry of lignocellulosic materials. The work: discusses the cost-efficient use of cellulose derivatives in a variety of commodities; highlights the chemical modification of wood by methods such as etherification, esterification and thermoplasticization; considers recent progress in the lignocellulosic liquefaction of wood; and more.


Functional natural polymers - a new dimensional creativity in lignocellulosic chemistry; chemical structures of cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin; reactivity and accessibility of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignins chemical modification ofcellulose; chemical modification of lignin; chemical modification of solid wood; liquefaction of wood; surface modification and activation of wood; chemical modification of nonwood lignocellulosics; characterization of chemically modified wood; weatheringof chemically modified wood; physical and mechanical properties of chemically modified wood; viscoelastic properties of chemically modified wood; biological properties of chemically modified wood.
