The difference DRIFT spectra of Japanese cedar after irradiation, heating of the irradiated one and heating alone were shown. In case of light-irradiated Japanese cedar, the intensive bands overlapped, the intensity of the carbonyl groups decreased and two distinct wavenumber ranges were observed at 1767 and 1705 cm-1 it was assumed that only the amount of carbonyl groups produced by light-irradiation decreases with heat treatment.
