The extraction of phenolic compounds from eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) bark was examined with the aim of analyzing the potential of the extracts as natural antioxidants. Experiments were planned according to a 23 factorial design to analyze the influence of temperature and Na2SO3 and NaOH concentrations in aqueous solutions on extraction yield, extract(More)
In this work, extracts from various lignocellulosic wastes were analyzed with the aim of applying them to prevent colour ultraviolet degradation of dyed veneers used for board coating. Chestnut fruit (Castanea sativa) shell and bur, barks from Pinus pinaster, Eucalyptus globulus, Quercus frainetto and Quercus robur and wood from Tilia cordata were extracted(More)
Extracts from different lignocellulosic sources were applied in the wood veneer dyeing process with the aim of preventing colour changes caused by ultraviolet (UV) degradation. Chestnut (Castanea sativa) fruit shell and bur, and barks from Pinus pinaster, Eucalyptus globulus and Quercus frainetto extracted using water or aqueous solutions of sodium sulphite(More)
MALDI-TOF, HPLC-ESI-TOF and 13C-NMR techniques were used to analyse the structure of non-purified aqueous chestnut shell tannin extracts. In addition, the influence of the extraction agent (water or aqueous solutions of Na2SO3 and/or NaOH) on tannin structure was analysed by MALDI-TOF in order to select the extract with the best properties for wood(More)
The aim of this work was the formulation of adhesives for particleboards based on tannins extracted from industrial lignocellulosic wastes, namely chestnut shell, chestnut bur and eucalyptus bark. The interest was centred on the possibility of completely removing formaldehyde from adhesive formulations. For this, hardener alternatives to formaldehyde were(More)
