Abstract

We designed a new rapid detection method for volatilized formaldehyde from wood. The process was installed with volatilizing and collecting parts in an incubator. For rapid sampling of formaldehyde from wood, we pulverized the wood to sawdust, and used 0.15-2.0 mm particles for the tests. The highest sampling rate (94.8%) was obtained at 40 mL/min flow rate and 100°C. Under the optimized condition, we could collect the volatilized formaldehyde with good recovery rate. The developed method was applied to the monitoring of the formaldehyde from wood, and the measured concentrations were 0.7-4.6 μg/g from natural wood, 5.9-12.3 μg/g from preserved wood, and 5.9- 211.5 μg/g from chemical adhesive processed wood. From the results, we identified natural wood sawdust and chemically processed wood (medium density fiberboard, high density fiberboard, particle board) by the formaldehyde contents except preserved wood.
