Title: Fungal decay resistance of wood reacted with phosphorus pentoxide-amine system

Author: Lee, Hong-Lin; Chen, George C.; Rowell, Roger M.;

Date: 2004

Source: Holzforschung. Vol. 58 (2004): Pages 311-315

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Resistance of wood reacted in situ with phosphorus pentoxide-amine to the brown-rot fungus Gloeophyllum trabeum and white-rot fungus Trametes versicolor was examined. Wood reacted with either octyl, tribromo, or nitro derivatives were more resistant to both fungi. Threshold retention values of phosphoramide-reacted wood to white-rot fungus T. versicolor ranged from 2.9 to 13.3 mmol, while these for brown-rot fungus G. trabeum ranged from 8.1 to 19.2 mmol. Wood reacted with phosphoramide tested to be more resistant to white-rot than brown-rot attack.

Keywords: Brown-rot, Gloeophyllum trabeum, phosphoramide, threshold retention, Trametes versicolor, white-rot
