Structure and chemical properties of fresh and degraded wood: their effects on radiocarbon activity measurements

Head, Malcolm John


The complexity of the chemical makeup of wood is such that it is very difficult to define the inter-relationship of the various major components. This thesis has endeavoured to outline inconsistencies found by various researchers with respect to C-14 activity measurements on whole wood and chemical fractions of wood. Wood chemistry literature has been surveyed extensively in an attempt to clarify the relationship between the major components of wood from different tree species. Many...[Show more]
