atoms. Formaldehyde belongs to this group of compounds. Hydration of formaldehyde is a spontaneous process.
In aqueous medium, formaldehyde exists more than 99% in the hydrated form [ 1 , 2 ] with a K h value of 2 × 10 3
; automobile tires to improve the bonding of rubber to tire cord; paper to improve the tear strength, especially of wet paper; and alkyds and acrylics to improve their cure. The ability of formaldehyde to form resinous polymers had been observed by chemists in

in the manufacture of wood-based panels.
Urea–formaldehyde (UF) resin is the most widely used polycondensation resins today in wood-based panels industry due to some advantages such as fast curing, good performance in the panel, and cost
Recently, we have synthesized a novel self-crosslinked terpolymer derived from 4-acetylpyridine oxime, acetophenone, and formaldehyde which was excellent thermal stability and antimicrobial activity for biomedical applications [ 13 ]. Also
