Abstract With the growing concern for fossil fuel depletion and environmental carbon footprint, there is a strong interest in exploring the renewable biomass materials as substitutes for petroleum-based feedstock. In this study, bark autoclave extractives from the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins)–infested lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl.) were used for partially replacing petroleum-based phenol in the phenol-formaldehyde (PF) resol resin synthesis. The structural… CONTINUE READING
