The Seventh European Conference on Wood Modification was held at Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil (LNEC), Portugal on 10-12 March 2014.COST FP1303 held a dedicated session at this Conference comprising the following papers:
  • Gry Alfredsen (Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute, Norway) - New insight regarding mode of action of brown rot decay of modified wood based on DNA and gene expression studies
  • Rebecka Ringman (SP Wood Technology, Sweden) - The role of Fenton derived hydroxyl radicals in oxidative and enzymatic degradation of furfurylated wood
  • Jan Van den Bulcke (Gent University, Belgium) - Moisture dynamics of modified wood
  • Bruno Andersons (Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry, Latvia) - Hydrothermally modified wood: some reasons for durability
  • Carmen-Mihaela Popescu (“Petru Poni” Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Romania) - The role of hydroxyl groups in determining the sorption properties of modified wood
  • Maziar Sedighi Moghaddam (SP Department of Chemistry, Materials and Surfaces – Polymer Technology, Sweden) - Dynamic wettability study on acetylated and furfurylated wood using multicycle Wilhelmy plate method
  • Dennis Jones (SP Wood Technology, Sweden) - Moisture risk and Wood Durability Testing for Modified Wood

 Several other papers in other sessions are also relevant to the Action.
