Bio-based Adhesives

Composite wood panels (e.g., plywood, particle board, flake board, and hard board)are indispensable for the construction industry. A substantial cost of these panels is the adhesive required to bind the wood pieces together. Much interest exists to create inexpensive bio-based adhesives to replace the expensive synthetic adhesives. Adhesives and methods of generate bio-based adhesives to fabricate panels are presented in this invention.

Benefits
• Provides low-cost bio-resins and adhesives for numerous applications
• Would result in eco-friendly composite wood panels for the building industry devoid of hazardous problems occurring when using synthetic resins

Applications
• Entirely organic and efficacious composite wood panels can be fabricated from relatively inexpensive agricultural by-products
