Help identify this chemical?

  1. Jul 16, 2013 #1
    Just wondering if anyone might have a guess as to what chemical this could be based on it's apperance when it is applied to wood. I found this picture on a woodworking site. This is some kind of chemical stain for wood. When first applied to wood it is a lemon yellow color but after a few minutes of UV exposure in sunlight it turns a brown / tan color.
