Abstract  

TG-DTA analysis method was used to study the curing behaviour of urea-formaldehyde (UF) adhesive resins in the presence of a wood substrate. The cure process was followed using a Setaram labsysTM instrument in flowing nitrogen atmosphere by varying the ratio of resin and wood. Resin cure was catalysed with 2% of NH4Cl. Curing tests were performed in the open standard platinum crucibles and in the sealed glass capsules. To characterise the reactivity of curing system, the peak temperatures in DTA curve and the mass loss values in TG curve were taken as the apparent indices. The main attention was paid to phenomena which actually take place in curing of UF resins during manufacturing of particleboards. Reactivity of the curing system depends mostly on methylol content of resin and can be adequetly evaluated by the maximum temperature of exothermic peak. The wood substrate has a substantial influence on the resin and water diffusion in system causing the changes in water/resin separation and water evaporation conditions. The water movement in curing adhesive joint was a confusing parameter in determining the peak positions. The rate of mass loss on a wood substrate is higher as compared to curing UF resin alone.

Abstract  

Thermal behaviour of cure-accelerated phenol-formaldehyde (PF) resins was studied using the addition of commercial mixture of water soluble oil shale alkylresorcinols (AR) to PF resin, 5-MR being as model compound. The acceleration effect of AR is based on the promotion of condensation of resin methylol groups and subsequent reaction of released formaldehyde with AR. Commercial PF resins SFŽ-3013VL and SFŽ-3014 from the Estonian factory VKG Resins have been used. The chemical structure of resins was characterised by 13C NMR spectroscopy. TG-DTA analysis was carried out using labsysTM instrument Setaram. By TG-DTA measurements, the shift of exothermic and endothermic peaks and the changes of mass loss rate in the ranges of 1.5–10 g AR/100 g PF resin were studied. The effect of AR on the curing behaviour of PF resins was also followed by gel time. Testing of the plywood when using PF resin with 5 mass% of AR shows that the press time could be reduced by about 15%.

Abstract  

The complexes of lanthanides(III) with hemimellitic acid (1,2,3-benzenetricarboxylic acid, H3btc) of the formula Ln(btc)·nH2O, where Ln=lanthanide(III) ion and n=2−6 were prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, infrared spectra, X-ray diffraction patterns and thermal analysis. The IR spectra of the complexes indicate coordination of lanthanides(III) through all carboxylate groups. The complexes of La(III), Ce(III), Pr(III) and Er(III) are amorphous. On heating in air atmosphere all complexes lose water molecules and next anhydrous compounds decompose to corresponding metal oxides.

Abstract  

By diffusion in gel medium new complexes of formulae: Nd(btc)⋅6H2O, Gd(btc)⋅4.5H2O and Er(btc)·5H2O (where btc=(C6H3(COO)3 3−) were obtained. Isomorphous compounds were crystallized in the form of globules. During heating in air atmosphere they lose stepwise water molecules and then anhydrous complexes decompose to oxides. Hydrothermally synthesized polycrystalline lanthanide trimellitates form two groups of isomorphous compounds. The light lanthanides form very stable compounds of the formula Ln(btc)⋅nH2O (where Ln=Ce−Gd and n=0 for Ce; n=1 for Gd; n=1.5 for La, Pr, Nd; n=2 for Eu, Sm). They dehydrate above 250°C and then immediately decomposition process occurs. Heavy lanthanides form complexes of formula Ln(btc)⋅nH2O (Ln=Dy−Lu). For mostly complexes, dehydration occurs in one step forming stable in wide range temperature compounds. As the final products of thermal decomposition lanthanide oxides are formed.

Abstract  

Urea–formaldehyde (UF) and phenol–formaldehyde (PF) resins are the most widely used wood adhesives. The first stage in resin manufacturing is the formation of methylol derivatives which polycondensation leads to building the tridimensional network. Understanding the behaviour of methylol compounds in curing provides useful information for developing appropriate resin structures. Thermal behaviour of N,N′-dihydroxymethylurea, 2- and 4-hydroxymethylphenols, urea and phenol as model compounds for UF, PF and phenol–urea–formaldehyde (PUF) resins was followed by TG-DTA method. The measurements were carried out by the labsys instrument Setaram at 30–450 °C in nitrogen flow. The characteristic signals for model compounds and for some reaction mixtures were measured by high resolution 13C NMR spectroscopy.

Abstract  

Thermal behaviour of industrial UF resins modified by low level of melamine was followed by TG-DTA technique on the labsys TM instrument Setaram together with the 13C NMR analysis of resin structure and testing boards in current production at Estonian particleboard factory Pärnu Plaaditehas AS. DTA curve of UF resin which has been cocondensed during synthesis with even low level of melamine shows the shift of condensation exotherm and water evaporation endotherm to considerable higher temperatures. The effect of melamine monomer introduced to UF resin just before curing was compared. The effect of addition of urea as formaldehyde scavenger was studied.
