This e-book provides an outline of varied forms of lignin and their specified buildings and homes, in addition to utilizations of crude or changed technical lignin for high-value bioproducts similar to 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 gasoline undefined. It therefore discusses a variety of thermal/chemical amendment strategies (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 supply lignin-based PF resins/adhesives, PF/PU foams and epoxy resins.
The e-book will curiosity and profit a large readership (graduate scholars, educational researchers, commercial researchers and practitioners) in a variety of fields of technology and know-how (chemical engineering, biotechnology, chemistry, fabric technological know-how, forestry, etc.).
