The objective of this study was to develop and assess the efficacy of two experimental methodologies for the maleinisation of lampante oil to be used for wood protection.

Two maleinisation techniques were used to chemically modify low-value lampante oil in an attempt to limit leaching, increase hydrophobicity, and impart some level of antimicrobial performance when impregnated in wood. Pine and beech wood specimens were treated with the modified oils and underwent leaching, accelerated weathering, and fungi tests. The following analysis assessed the efficacy of the modified oil treatments in improving these characteristics.
