In this study, triglycidylamine (TGA) was synthesized and evaluated as a crosslinking agent for soy flour (SF) for making five-ply plywood from yellow poplar. Glycerol polyglycidyl ether (GPE) and trimethylolpropane triglycidyl ether (TTE) were also investigated as crosslinking agents for SF as adhesive for plywood. The plywood panels bonded with...
Mechanical pulp fibers (MPFs) and chemical pulp fibers (CPFs) from moso bamboo have been characterized in terms of their length and width distributions, and their reinforcing effects in unsaturated polyester (UPE) composites have also been investigated. CPF-UPE composites had much higher tensile strength, flexural strength, and flexural modulus than MPF-UPE...
The recent multistate outbreak of
a multidrug-resistant (MDR) Salmonella Heidelberg
strain from commercial poultry production highlights
the need to better understand the reservoirs of these
zoonotic pathogens within the commercial poultry production
and processing environment. As part of a larger
study looking at temporal changes in microbial communities
