RESEARCH UPDATES SPRING 2024


I-10-FR: Carbon Isotope Ratios, novel view of CH2O emissions

Student: Mark Cashman
PI: Chip Frazier | Site: VT
IAB TC Lead: Todd Miller

LIFE Forms →

Chemical processes fractionate stable isotopes in ways that reveal chemical sources, environmental processes, and plant metabolism. Carbon isotope ratios can reveal the source of formaldehyde emissions as either biogenic or synthetic.

Student: Oluwafunbi Adeleye
PI: Lech Muszynski, John Nairn, Mariapola Riggio | Site: OSU
IAB TC Lead: Patrick Farrell

LIFE Forms →

Developing a reliable integrated 3D numerical model for predicting the long-term response of engineered wood-based composites exposed to loads under variable climate conditions.


O-02-VI: Monitoring Phenol Formaldehyde and Wax Content with Vis/Nir Smartphone Technology(New)

Student: Seth Adusei
PI: Brian Via | Site: AUB
IAB TC Lead: Patrick Farrell

LIFE Forms →

Developing VIS/NIR spectroscopy as a tool that can simultaneously monitor the phenol-formaldehyde (PF) and wax content in oriented strand board panels.

O-07-PE: Understanding the fundamental influence of wood extractives on wood(New)

Student: Diego Cuartas
PI: S.Peresin, S.gururaja, J.Nairn, J.Simonse, C.Frazier | Site: AUB, OSU, VT
IAB TC Lead: Bob Breyer & Bill Leggate

LIFE Forms →

Providing a platform to obtain insights into the fundamentals of extractives on adhesion in wood composites and how this impacts the adhesion of dense species.

Presentation
