Pizzi and Roux (1978a) developed cold-setting adhesive made from resorcinol, wattle flavonoid condensate, and trichloroacetic acid mixed with para formaldehyde, and the resulting shear strength met the British Standard BS 1204 part 2 for synthetic resin adhesive (British Standards Institution 1979).
It is interesting to note that cold-setting adhesives based on flavonoid-resorcinol direct adducts have been prepared synthetically (Pizzi and Roux 1978a) and that flavonoid-resorcinol-formaldehyde coreacted adhesives have already been reported (Pizzi and Roux 1978b) and commercialized.
