Due to its potential for commercial applications, wood modification with furfuryl alcohol (FA) is now attracting enhanced attentions from researchers and industry. Selection of suitable catalysts to control the polymerization of FA during storage and curing is the most crucial component of this technology. In this paper, a new composite acidic catalyst composed of oxalic acid and citric acid was proposed and compared with the widely adopted maleic anhydride catalyst, with Masson pine (Pinus… CONTINUE READING
