Determination of quality parameters such as lignin and extractive content of wood samples by wet chemistry analyses takes a long time. Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy coupled with multivariate calibration offers a fast and nondestructive alternative to obtain reliable results. However, due to the complexity of the NIR spectra, some wavelength selection is(More)
Sawdust is usually considered as waste in wood-using industries. These materials can be converted into value added thermoplastics by means of benzylation. Products can be utilized in different applications where plastics are used. Thermoplasticization process was carried out with benzyl chloride under different alkaline conditions, 15, 25 and 35 %,(More)
In this study, the effects of heat treatment on some physical, mechanical, wettability and bonding properties of Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) were investigated. Specimens were exposed to heat under atmospheric pressure at four different temperatures (120, 150, 180, 210 °C) and three different time levels (2, 5, 8 hours). Weight loss, bending strength(More)
