The polymerization kinetics of furfuryl alcohol in wood veneer were studied using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and were compared with weight gains of treated wood veneers. Maleic anhydride was used as the reaction initiator. DSC data were obtained for samples of the veneers that had been impregnated with neat furfuryl alcohol or with furfuryl alcohol diluted with ethanol, and using two ratios of maleic anhydride to furfuryl alcohol. The high ratio of maleic anhydride to furfuryl alcohol (1:9) favoured rapid polymerization at a lower temperature, whereas the lower ratio (1:19) resulted in a relatively slower rate of polymerization, which required higher temperatures to affect the reaction. A higher temperature also led to an increase in furfuryl alcohol evaporation from the prepared veneers. The DSC data was compared with data obtained from furfuryl alcohol impregnated wood veneers but without the addition of maleic anhydride. DSC data is in good agreement with weight percentage gains (WPGs) obtained for samples impregnated with differently composed solutions. While higher maleic anhydride contents led to higher WPGs, ethanol dilution inhibits polymer formation, resulting in lower WPG.
