Studies in wood decay. III. The toxicity of Western Yellow Fine crude oil to Lenzites saepiaria Fries


, : Studies in wood decay. III. The toxicity of Western Yellow Fine crude oil to Lenzites saepiaria Fries. Journ. Indus, and Engin. Chem, 14: 7, 617-618

Crude western yellow pine oil is a heavy, syrupy liquid, acid in reaction, and with a sharp, pungent odour. In order to test its value as a wood preservative, it was added, in concentrations ranging from 0.5 to 15 per cent., to cultures of Lenzites saepiaria grown on sawdust from lowland white fir (Abies grandis), Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga taxifolia), and sugar maple (Acer saccharum). The culture flasks were kept under observation for three weeks and examined at frequent intervals.
