Abstract

Extraction of black locust heartwood with a series of solvents, including hexane, ethyl acetate, methanol and aqueous acetone, left the normally durable wood susceptible to decay by the brown rot fungus Cloeophyllum trabeum. The combined extracts of black locust were able to impart a high level of decay resistance to aspen, a normally nondurable wood. Several single stage extraction techniques were also tested with the methanol extract removing the most decay resistance from black locust, and providing aspen with the most decay resistance.
