Detection of brown rot decay in wood by ion mobility spectrometry

IRG/WP 2377

A H Lawrence, T Nilsson

A test method for the detection of brown rot decay in wood is described and involves a two-step procedure: thermal release of vapours from wood samples followed by analysis using Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS), with results being obtained in 5-10 seconds. The advantages, limitations as well as the detection limit of the technique are presented.
