Abstract
This study aims to evaluate the effect of drying temperature on the chemical-substance emission rate from solid wood. Japanese Cedar and German Spruce were examinated with small chambers. The results show that solid wood dried at high temperature emits low VOCs. However, the HCHO emission rate is significantly lower than that of wood-based materials. Therefore, we suggest that cedar and pine dried at a relativeley high temperature might be suitable materials to maintain low chemical-substance concentration to attain good indoor air quality.
