This study presents the characterization of parenchyma and vascular bundle of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) trunks harvested in Ladang Pelam, Kedah, Malaysia. Samples cut from outer, middle, and inner parts of the trunks were stored in a room at a temperature of 29 ° C for 0, 45, and 60 days prior to any tests. Parenchyma cells and vascular bundles from each sample were manually separated for microscopic analysis. Both light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy were employed to… Expand

Abstract Template
Currently most of oil palm trunks in Thailand are left on the field to rot or are burnt in the field, not utilized as lumber. To promote such value-added uses, the objective of this study was toExpand
The effect of power intensity properties of microwave modified oil palm trunk lumber
In the decade, oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) in Malaysia is one of the conventional sources that will be rising, and the rate of biomass will considerably increase in yet to come. Presently, oil palmExpand
Influence of sugar and starch content of palm wood on fungal development and prevention of fungal colonization by acid treatment
Abstract Freshly harvested palm trunks and timber with their high moisture content (MC) are susceptible to fungi due to the high content of easily consumable sugars and starch as long as MC of theExpand
Environment-friendly short-term protection of palm wood against mould and rot fungi
Testing environment-friendly organic acids for their protecting efficiency showed that both acids prevented most samples from fungal colonization for three weeks and reduced the decay considerably during two months. Expand
