Chemical Characterisation of Compression Wood in Plantation Grown Pinus Radiata Nanayakkara, Bernadette (The University of Waikato, 2007)The primary objective of this study was to find out if changes in chemistry could be used to quantify Pinus radiata compression wood severity or degree of compression wood development. Basic chemical composition and the ...
Quantitative chemical indicators to assess the gradation of compression wood Nanayakkara, Bernadette; Manley-Harris, Merilyn; Sucklin, Ian D.; Donaldson, Lloyd A. (Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG, 2009-07)A chemistry-based parameter has been sought for determining the gradation of compression wood (CW), i.e., the severity, in tissues of Pinus radiata wood. Fluorescence microscopy was the reference for characterisation of ...
Understanding the degree of condensation of phenolic and etherified C-9 Units of in situ lignins Nanayakkara, Bernadette; Manley-Harris, Merilyn; Suckling, Ian D. (American Chemical Society, 2011)A novel approach for the quantification of the degree of condensation at the C₅ position of etherified and phenolic phenylpropane (C-9) units of in situ lignin is described. This is achieved by degrading unmethylated and ...
