Polar chemicals can also penetrate through wood cell walls and side-grain cracks, resulting in wetting of the cellulosic portion of the wood, opening of blocked cells, and wood swelling (Forest Products Laboratory 1999).
The template was prepared by removing the light-absorbing lignin component, creating nanoporosity in the wood cell wall.
Wood cell walls are composed of cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin (Stefanidis et al, 2014).

7 GPa) (21) compared to that of the nanoclays (170 GPa), (22) if well dispersed in the primer formulation, could enhance the mechanical properties of primer which has partly diffused in wood cell cavities at the surface.
The tunnel within wood cell walls produced by hyphae of wood decay fungi [4,9] appears to be a unique form of fungal decay different from any of the well known fungal decay types.
The Pentacryl stays in the wood and leaves a thin coating on the wood cell walls.
The papers discuss the significance, analysis, and potential of utilization of extractives from wood; synchrotron radiation x-ray scattering techniques for studying the micro- and nanostructure of wood and their relation to the mechanical properties; changes in nanostructure of wood cell wall during deformation; monotonic strength properties of Siberian yellow pine; chemical characterization and comparison of thermally treated beech and ash wood; and softwood degradation after being several thousand years in shore front mud.
49) The relative lack of carbohydrate removal in the treatment of solid wood as a delignified substrate is presumably due to a lack of access of treatment chemicals, through diffusion-controlled processes, which resulted in very little oxidation of carbohydrates in the wood cell walls.
These results suggest that Buddleja species growing in harsher environments, as the small shrubs, show less variation in wood cell size, while species growing in more diverse environments may have more diverse habits and consequently greater wood cell size variation.
White rot fungus is used in a preprocess step to break down the lignin in the wood cell wall structure.
As moisture content changes above fiber saturation, the cell cavities take on or lose unbound water but the wood cell walls do not change dimensionally.
