Monitoring Wood Degradation during Weathering by Cellulose Crystallinity

  title={Monitoring Wood Degradation during Weathering by Cellulose Crystallinity},
  author={Francesca Lionetto and Roberta Del Sole and Donato Cannoletta and Giuseppe Vasapollo and Alfonso Maffezzoli},
The degree of crystallinity of cellulose was used for assessing the degradation level of coated and uncoated samples of pine wood after weathering. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy measured the changes in the surface crystallinity of cellulose resulting from weathering, both natural and artificial. Both techniques revealed an increase in the crystallinity index (CI) of cellulose when wood was subjected to weathering. An increase in the size of… CONTINUE READING
