The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of natural weathering in ground contact on biological resistance, modulus of rupture, and color stability of heat-treated alder wood. Chemical composition of weathered wood was also studied by FTIR-ATR spectra. Wood stakes were heated at 150, 180, and 200°C for periods of 2, 6, and 10 hours, and the(More)
A 30-year-old woman complained of right-sided epiphora for 2 years. She also reported diplopia on certain gaze positions and felt a hard mass behind the right medial inferior orbital rim. Magnetic resonance imaging studies demonstrated a relatively well-delineated mass in the right inferomedial orbit with minimal ethmoid sinus involvement. Histopathological(More)
Some mechanical properties of wood-polymer composites from maritime pine (Pinus pinaster Ait.) and poplar (Populus x. euramericana cv. I-214) wood were investigated. Three different monomers; styrene (ST), methyl methacrylate (MMA) and styrene/methyl methacrylate (ST/MMA) mixture were used in preparation of wood-polymer composites (WPCs). Full-loading (FL),(More)
In this study, we investigated the effects of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorinated pesticides on the serum levels of luteinising hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and weights and histomorphometry of uterine tissue in immature female rats using uterotrophic assay. A total of 36 rats were randomly divided into six groups (n =(More)
Particleboard panels were made from various wood particle/needle litter of Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) mixtures bonded with urea formaldehyde resin. Litter was characterized by having higher solubility's in alcohol-benzene, with diluting alkali and hot water, and resulted in lower pH values than those of wood particles. The mechanical properties(More)
In spite of many alternative materials like iron, plastic, and concrete, which can be used instead of solid wood in different areas, wood remains superior as a natural engineering material. Due to depletion of forest resources, forest products industries are faced with a crisis in obtaining suitable raw materials in suffi cient amount. Therefore, layered(More)
The mechanical, physical properties and decay resistances of particleboard made from particles impregnated with Pinus brutia bark extractives were examined. Properties included were modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity, internal bond, thickness swelling, and weight loss according to European standards. The results showed that particleboards made from(More)

A highly unusual patient with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) presenting with simultaneous bilateral orbital tumors is described. A 12-year-old girl with a family history of NF2 was examined because of bilateral proptosis. Visual acuities were light perception RE and 20/40 LE. Magnetic resonance imaging studies showed bilateral cerebellopontine angle tumors,(More)
In this study it was aimed to improve impregnability of spruce (Picea orientalis L.) wood with bacteria (Bacillus licheniformis A1) pretreatment, using copper/chromium/arsenic Type C (CCA-C) and copper azole Type A (CBA-A). The effects of Bacillus licheniformis A1 on weight loss, copper uptake, and compression strength of samples were determined. Weight(More)
