In this study, chemical, physical and morphological properties of fig (Ficus carica) wood obtained from Aydın and Kahramanmaraş (Turkey) provinces were determined. The obtained data were compared with t-test analysis.
Chemical features like holocellulose, α-cellulose, lignin, alcohol-benzene solubility, hot-cold water and 1% NaOH solubilities and ash content were determined. The results of samples, taken from Aydın were 72.20%, 38.47%, 22.71%, 1.00%, 8.42%, 7.43%, 19.62%, 3.13% and for K.Maraş samples 64.43%, 41.78%, 16.18%, 7.92%, 16.60%, 15.47%, 24.53% and 3.70%, respectively.
For the physical properties, no statistical difference was found between the samples. According to the result, air density was found (D12) 0.73 g/cm3, oven dry density (Do) 0.61 g/cm3, basic density (R) 0.54 g/cm3, fiber saturation point (LDN) %21.88, maximum moisture content (MMC) %118.88, volumetric shrinkage (βv) %11.63 and volumetric swelling (αv) as %22.89.
Fiber length, fiber diameter, cell wall thickness and lumen diameter were found to be 0.83 mm, 22.05 µm, 5.44 µm, 16.05 µm, respectively in fig wood from Aydın and 0.88 mm, 20.44 µm, 3.86 µm, 16.58 µm in K.Maraş samples, respectively.
