Download e-book for iPad: Conversion of Lignin into Bio-Based Chemicals and Materials by Chunbao Xu,Fatemeh Ferdosian

By Chunbao Xu,Fatemeh Ferdosian

This booklet offers an summary of varied different types of lignin and their specific constructions and homes, in addition to utilizations of crude or changed technical lignin for high-value bioproducts reminiscent of lignin-based PF resins/adhesives, epoxy resins, PF foams, PU foams, rubber reinforcement and carbon fibers and as dispersants in drilling fluids within the oil and fuel undefined. It therefore discusses quite a few thermal/chemical amendment recommendations (pyrolysis, direct liquefaction and de-polymerization) for changing lignin into oils and chemical feedstocks, and the usage of crude lignin, lignin-derived oils or depolymerized lignins (DLs) of diminished molecular weights and more suitable reactivity to provide lignin-based PF resins/adhesives, PF/PU foams and epoxy resins.

The booklet will curiosity and profit a vast readership (graduate scholars, educational researchers, business researchers and practitioners) in numerous fields of technological know-how and know-how (chemical engineering, biotechnology, chemistry, fabric technology, forestry, etc.).

Chunbao (Charles) Xu, PhD, is presently a Professor of Chemical Engineering and NSERC/FPInnovations commercial study Chair in wooded area Biorefinery on the collage of Western Ontario, Canada.

Fatemeh Ferdosian, PhD, is at the moment a postdoctoral fellow on the collage of Waterloo, Canada.
