Structure and spacing of cellulose microfibrils in woody cellwalls of dicots
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2014)
The structure of cellulose microfibrils in situ in wood from the dicotyledonous (hardwood) species cherry and birch, and the vascular tissue from sunflower stems, was examined by wide-angle X-ray and neutron scattering ...
Dimensional stability, fungal resistance and mechanical properties of radiata pine after combined thermo-mechanical compression and oil heat-treatment
(University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2016)
This study investigated the dimensional stability and mechanical properties of thermo-mechanically compressed radiata pine (Pinus radiata) wood followed by oil heat-treatment. Wood specimens were first compressed in the ...
Predicting extractive content of Eucalyptus bosistoana heartwood by near infrared spectroscopy
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2015)
Changes in chemistry, color, dimensional stability and fungal resistance of Pinus radiata D. Don wood with oil heat-treatment
(University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2011)
Pinus radiata wood specimens were heat-treated at 160-210°C in linseed oil and the effects of treatment on chemical composition, color, dimensional stability, and fungal resistance were examined. The degradation of ...
Feasibility of producing maple syrup in New Zealand
Maple syrup is strongly associated with North America in the same way that wine was once associated with France. Parts of New Zealand (NZ) have growing conditions suitable for maple trees to grow and exude sap to be used ...
