A mechanism of acetaldehyde emission from wood induced by the addition of ethanol was proposed. It is known that acetaldehyde generation is due to the oxidation of ethanol via a metabolic process involving alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) in living bodies. However, it remains unclear whether the enzymatic alcohol oxidation is applicable to wood. We investigated(More)
Acetaldehyde emissions from particleboard, fiberboard, and plywood were studied using the small chamber method and high-performance liquid chromatography analysis. The chamber tests were conducted for 1 month to examine the time dependence of acetaldehyde emission. Effects of temperature and relative humidity were also examined. Acetaldehyde emissions from(More)
In ISO/TC89, the measuring method of formaldehyde emitted from wood-based materials was discussed, and the ISO standard of the desiccator method was enacted in 2008. There are some differences between the desiccator methods according to JIS and ISO standard and therefore, the experimental equivalence is not evident. In this study, equivalence of the cooling(More)
