Abstract
We developed soy protein concentrate–soy protein isolate bonded Rhizophora spp. particleboard
phantoms using sodium hydroxide and a bio-based curing agent (itaconic acid polyamidoamine-epichlorohydrin
resin). The probability of photon interactions was obtained at selected energies using Monte Carlo simulation
with EGSnrc PEGS4 and used to interpolate experimental results, and compared with that of water and solid
water phantoms. The dosimetric parameters were estimated through the use of an ionization chamber and
Gafchromic EBT3 film dosimeters to ensure the equivalence of these phantoms. The particleboard phantoms
were found to have the better agreement of average densities and effective atomic number of all samples
compared to that of water. The evaluated relative difference in the depth-of-dose maximum (dmax) was 2.90%,
2.96%, 2.87% and 2.93% for 6 MV photons, while those of 10 MV photons were 8.84%, 10.03%, 8.06% and
9.81%, respectively. The percentage depth dose curves of the electron beams revealed an enhanced surface dose.
The comparison between the measured dosimetric parameters using Gafchromic EBT3 films at all depths
indicates good consistency with a difference of within 2% and 9% for 6 MV and 10 MV photon beams. In
addition, similar results were found for electron beams with discrepancies within 2% and 5.5% for 6 MeV and
15 MeV, respectively. The fabricated particleboard phantoms were shown to be ideal for use in radiation
therapy dosimetry as tissue substitute phantom material.

Key words: Bio-based adhesives, Tissue substitute, Rhizophora spp., dosimetric parameters, EGSnrc
