Abstract

The chemical constituents and physical properties of 1/2-, 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-year-old Bambusa heterostachya were assessed. With the exception of density, the moisture content and shrinkage were negatively correlated with age. The chemical compositions, on the other hand, differed significantly with maturity and culm height (except for cold water solubles, holocellulose and ash contents). Despite of age and height, the high cellulose content of this species indicates its good potential as a raw material for pulp and paper.
