The Master thesis, presented at the colloquium, describes the research that has been conducted at the Chemical Engineering department of the University of Groningen. Plywood adhesives based on formaldehyde induce health and safety problems due to the emission of hazardous components. The University of Groningen developed a thermosetting material based on polyketone, which might be used an alternative for adhesives containing formaldehyde. However, a large disadvantage of polyketone is its high material costs. To improve the ratio between cost and performance of polyketone based adhesives, further research has been initiated. One area in which improvement is sought, is that of the setting speed of the adhesive. The goal of this thesis is to enhance the fundamental understanding regarding the development of new fast thermosetting wood adhesive by systematically researching the influence of an increased ethylene content on the performance of linear alternating polyketones based emulsions as wood adhesive. A case study has been used to illustrate the implementation of such (faster setting) polyketone based adhesive within a hypothetical plywood factory.
