Specimens of Eucalyptus delegatensis timber showing different degrees of shrinkage and recovery on reconditioning have been examined by staining and analysed for lignin and polyphenol content. Collapsed specimens did not stain normally for lignin but this was shown to be caused by masking of staining reactions by polyphenol. Cross sectional area shrinkage before reconditioning did not show any significant correlation with either lignin or polyphenol content but shrinkage after reconditioning… CONTINUE READING
