Abstract

Nanotechnology in Wood and Wood-Composite Materials

Wood is a natural, biodegradable, and renewable material that canbe used in many applications, including structural members, ornamental objects, aerospace technology, etc. Its low thermal and electrical conductivity coefficients have made it unique for specific purposes since the creation of humanity. However, some of its other features are quite bothering such as its deterioration by a variety of fungi and insects, its susceptibility to fire, as well as the dimensional instability to water absorption. Over the past few decades, nanotechnology was utilized in many sciences and it was used to improve the quality of many materials, including wood and wood-composites.
