Use of natural abundance 15N DEPT NMR to investigate curing of urea-formaldehyde resin in the presence of wood fibers

Brendon D. Gill, Merilyn Manley-Harris, and Ralph Thomson

Natural abundance 15N NMR using a DEPT pulse sequence was employed to follow the curing of urea-formaldehyde resin in the presence of wood fiber, fiber extracts and acid or base. The advantages of 15N NMR, large range chemical shifts, simplification of spectra and lack of interference by additives, can be exploited. The disadvantages of low sensitivity and long relaxation delays are offset by using a cross-polarization technique.
