Bamboo, carbonizing treatment, hydro-thermal treatment, alkali treatment


Bamboo contains water-soluble saccharides and carboxylic acid which have an anticoagulation effect on Portland cement, and the anticoagulation ingredients can directly influence the hydration reaction extent. Hydration product varieties and hydration product-bamboo shaving binding interfaces of the Portland cement, and finally the mechanical properties of bamboo cement particle boards. In this paper, bamboo shavings are pretreated by carbonizing treatment, hydro-thermal treatment and alkali treatment; highperformance liquid chromatography is adopted to analyze the influences of three different pretreatment methods on contents of water-soluble saccharides and carboxylic acid in the bamboo shavings; a Fourier infrared spectrometer and an X-ray diffractometer are respectively utilized to analyze the characteristic peak changes and crystallization property changes of chemical ingredients of the bamboo shavings before and after the three types of pretreatment.This paper discusses effects of three types of pretreatment methods in eliminating water-soluble saccharides and carboxylic acid in the bamboo shavings. Bamboo Portland cement particle boards was prepared using bamboo shavings, which are pretreated in three ways, and influences and mechanisms of different pretreatment methods on properties of the bamboo Portland cement particle boards were studied. Research indicates that the mechanical properties of the Portland cement particle board prepared from bamboo shavings pretreated with 3 % NaOH solution are superior to requirements of qualified products and superior products specified in the Standard GBT24312 (GB 2009).
