Abstract

Tannins have been used in Indonesia for a long time, mainly for tanning leather, coloring batik and other traditional cloths, and preserving fishnets. In recent years, the forest industry in Indonesia has shown an interest in the possibility of incorporating tannins with phenol formaldehyde adhesive for the manufacture of wood composites such as plywood and particleboard. However, efforts to increase utilization of tannins have been largely empirical. Basic research is now being conducted to isolate and characterize the tannin extracts from plants, especially those from mangrove bark, for their potential commercial use in a wide variety of specialty chemical applications.
