Abstract

It was realized that the swelling rate coefficients increases significantly with extractive free chestnut wood-water systems resulting the initiation of the swelling process displaced towards shorter times, had lowering activation energies (Ea). The Ea of unextracted and extracted free chestnut was found to be 38.4 and 19.5 kj.mol(-1), respectively.
