Abstract
  • One of the major disadvantages of wood is that it swells and shrinks when water is adsorbed or desorbed below the fiber saturation point. This property causes numerous problems when wood is used as a structural material. Consequently, a considerable amount of research has been conducted on this problem, but has resulted in only a ]invited degree of success to date. There are several approaches to this problem (1) but this paper will be limited to a discussion of crosslinking by chemical methods. The discussion will include cotton as well as wood, because a great deal of research has been conducted on crosslinking cotton. This information will be of great value in future work on wood. A major emphasis will be placed on reaction mechanisms for the various compounds.
