木材の寸法安定化技術、化学はロマン(2) Dimensionally-stabilized wood products, a dreamful chemistry (2)

One of the technologies needed to revitalize the timber industry and to use more forest resources in Japan is the wood dimension stabilizing technology. Yesterday on October 29th, I was again asked for the technical advice on that by a wood processing company president because the same kind of technology for natural cellulose fibers like cotton, which I know, should be effectively applied to timbers as well. The reason for that is both cotton and woods are made of cellulose fiber polymers. My knowledge about that may be old, but the chemical principles and theories never change and I would like to do my best to make their technology development successful.
