The acidity of wood and panel product was important factor to impact on metal corrosion and give effect on adhesive curing time. The objective of this research was to explore of pH and buffering capacity from nine tropical woods. Method to determination of pH and buffering capacity reffers to Johns and Niazi (1980) experiment. The result of this research showed that nine tropical woods which observed had different acidity and buffering capacity. The range of wood acidity had pH 4-7. The correlation value of pH and buffering capacity from this research about 4-5 for base and acid buffering.
Keywords: acidity of wood, pH, buffering capacity.

The objective of this research was to analyze the physical and mechanical properties of palm oil trunk. The result showed that in term of the vertical direction the lower part of stem had better physical (density, moisture content and shrinkage) and mechanical (modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture, hardness, compressive and tensile strength parallel to grain) properties compared with medium and upper end part. In the horizontal direction the edge part of trunk had better physical and mechanical properties than medium and center part.
