- ... The swelling of wood upon impregnation by aqueous solutions of organic solvents is larger than swelling by pure water. This phenomenon, described as “hyperswelling”, results from specific interactions with components of the complex wood microstructure. To understand the combined effect of mixed solvents on wood properties, the specific influence of each solvent on wood biopolymers and structure mu ...
