Table 3 A table to show the calculated mean bending strength (MOR) values of wood species that have been treated with scCO2(PURE) and scCO2(MeOH) in comparison to the untreated oven-dried samples

From: Hydrating softwood and hardwood samples using pure and modified supercritical carbon dioxide

Wood MOR oven-dried (MPa) MOR scCO2(PURE) (MPa) MOR scCO2(MeOH) 2.5 mol% (MPa) MOR scCO2(MeOH) 5.0 mol% (MPa)
Maple (M) 640 738 684 675
White Oak (M) 528 715 659 625
Red Oak (M) 521 743 717 600
Zebrano (M) 791 970 958 900
Maple (H) 634 605 562 444
White Oak (H) 514 633 574 524
Scots Pine (H) 110 272 181 151
Keruing (H) 718 845 776 767
