  "description": "<p>Finding efficient ways to decrease wood decay caused by fungi is an important issue in the timber</p>\n\n<p>construction. A possible way to avoid wood decay by fungi is by reducing the water content of</p>\n\n<p>wood, since water is a primary condition for fungal growth. Bulking of the wood cell wall by</p>\n\n<p>chemical reagents occupies the space where water normally occurs. This also improves the</p>\n\n<p>dimensional stability of the modified wood. The aim of the work was to react non-toxic</p>\n\n<p>reagents using a Maillard type of reaction in the wood cell wall. Wood was soaked in different</p>\n\n<p>aqueous solutions with a primary amine and a sugar as the main constituents. The wood was</p>\n\n<p>thereafter cured in an oven at 120&deg;C. The preliminary results showed that the use of the</p>\n\n<p>Maillard reaction for wood modification is a promising method and is worth further research.</p>",
