    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;Finding efficient ways to decrease wood decay caused by fungi is an important issue in the timber&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;construction. A possible way to avoid wood decay by fungi is by reducing the water content of&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;wood, since water is a primary condition for fungal growth. Bulking of the wood cell wall by&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;chemical reagents occupies the space where water normally occurs. This also improves the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;dimensional stability of the modified wood. The aim of the work was to react non-toxic&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;reagents using a Maillard type of reaction in the wood cell wall. Wood was soaked in different&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;aqueous solutions with a primary amine and a sugar as the main constituents. The wood was&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;thereafter cured in an oven at 120&amp;deg;C. The preliminary results showed that the use of the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Maillard reaction for wood modification is a promising method and is worth further research.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
