  • The wood is considered a natural composite of extreme complexity, mainly composed of cellulose, lignin, hemicellulose (polyposis), and extractives. Its composition encourages biological attacks from different species. In this context, several techniques have been studied and applied for disinfecting and decontaminating wood-made works of art and cultural heritage objects, which have been damaged by fungi, bacteria, and insects. Gamma radiation has been studied as an alternative to chemical… CONTINUE READING
