Swelling of Wood. Part IV. A Statistical Model for Prediction of Maximum Swelling of Wood in Organic Liquids
Keywords:Wood swelling, maximum tangential swelling, solvent basicity, molar volume, hydrogen bonding parameter
AbstractA statistical model for prediction of the maximum extent of the swelling of wood in organic liquids is proposed in this work. Solvent basicity, solvent molecular volume, and density of wood appeared to be the most important parameters in the proposed model. The addition of the hydrogen bonding capability parameter did not significantly improve the model.
