|Abstract: ||The relationship between total extractive content
and durability of Nauclea diderrichii (de Wild.) Merr.
and Corynanthe pachyceras Welw. from the Rubiaceae and
Nesogodornia papaverifera (A. Chev.) R. Capuron. from the
Tiliaceae has been investigated. The extractive content
of each wood was measured and blocks were exposed to
Coriolus versicolor (Linnaeus) Quelet for 8 weeks. An
inverse relationship was found between extractive content
and weight loss. From the results, it was found that
N. diderrichii (extractive content = 13.29–13.96%; weight
loss = 1.02–1.91%) is the most durable species, followed
by C. pachyceras heartwood (extractive content = 12.56–
14.19%; weight loss = 5.80–8.21%) and N. papaverifera
(extractive content = 10.18–10.65%; weight loss = 8.22–
9.01%). For these species, total extractive content is consistently
related to the durability of the hardwoods.|
