Formaldehyde is used in making resins such as urea-formaldehyde that are used in adhesives for some composite wood products (particle board, fiberboard, and plywood) used to manufacture furniture. Formaldehyde is found in some paints, lacquers, and coatings used to manufacture wood furniture.Is there formaldehyde in engineered hardwood?
Depends on how sensitive your daughter is. ALL hardwood flooring contains formaldehyde. It's a product of nature. Glues used in engineered hardwood, if urea-formaldehyde based, will outgass much more formaldehyde than natural wood. Phenol-formaldehyde or no-added-formaldehyde adhesives will emit almost none.What is the structural formula for formaldehyde?
Formula and structure: The formaldehyde chemical formula is CH2O. Its molar mass is 30.026 g mL-1. The formaldehyde molecule has the usual functional group of an aldehyde H-C=O bound to a hydrogen, so that the formaldehyde is the most simple aldehyde.
