Abstract

Fast-growing wood plays an important role in addressing the contradiction between supply and demand of wood. However, the low-quality of fast-growing wood limits its wide applications as an alternative to high-quality wood. Consequently, we designs organic-inorganic hybrid polymer as reinforcer to improve the mechanical properties and thermal stability of poplar wood. Poly(ethylene glycol) dimethacrylate (PEG200DMA) as an organic agent, tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) as an inorganic agent and γ-( methacryloxypropyl) trimethoxy silane (KH570) as a coupling agent were employed to form organic-inorganic hybrid polymer in wood via free radical polymerization and hydrolysis-condensation reaction, in order to impart the high toughness of polymer, and high thermal stability of inorganic matrix to wood. The modulus of rupture, compression strength, impact toughness and hardness of the resulted wood is remarkably increased by 61%, 57%, 140% and 221% over untreated wood, respectively.
