  "abstract": "<p>Fourier-transform near-infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) was used as none-destructive&nbsp;method to determinate changes in the chemical structure of heat-treated wood. For this purpose,&nbsp;pine sapwood (Pinus sylvestris L.) was treated at different temperatures (from 100 &deg;C to 240 &deg;C)&nbsp;and for three durations(1, 3 or 5 hours). The effects of chemical changes on the FT-NIR spectra are linked to absorbance changes of functional groups (&ndash;OH, &ndash;CH, &ndash;CO and &ndash;CH2) of lignin,&nbsp;hemicelluloses and cellulose. Gradual degradation of amorphous portion of cellulose was&nbsp;caused by high temperature, while crystalline and semi-crystalline portions of cellulose&nbsp;seem to be less affected by the thermal treatment. The effect of various intensities of heat&nbsp;treatment on chemical changes of wood polymers varied depending on temperature and&nbsp;duration. Presentation of spectra in the form of the xylograms shows clear tendency of&nbsp;degradation kinetic. Evaluation of thermal stability of selected wood component and/or&nbsp;comparison of the influence of modification process parameters can be carried out.</p>",
