Title: Bio-based rigid polyurethane foam from liquefied products of wood in the presence of polyhydric alcohols

Author: Zheng, Zhifeng; Pan, Hui; Huang, Yuanbo; Hse, Chung Y.;

Date: 2011

Source: Advanced Materials Research 168-170:1281-1284

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Rigid polyurethane foams were prepared from the liquefied wood polyols, which was obtained by the liquefaction of southern pine wood in the presence of polyhydric alcohols with sulfuric acid catalyst by using microwave-assistant as an energy source. The properties of liquefied biomass-based polyols and the rigid polyurethane foams were investigated. The results indicated that the foams exhibited excellent mechanical properties.

Keywords: polyurethane rigid foam, liquefaction, southern pine, microwave heating
