As clearly taking place and considerable assets of non-fossil carbon, lignin and lignans supply intriguing percentages as a resource of commercially precious items, relocating clear of petrochemical-based feedstocks in favour of renewable uncooked fabrics. Lignin can be utilized without delay in fields equivalent to agriculture, cattle, soil rehabilitation, bioremediation and the polymer undefined, or it may be chemically converted for the fabrication of forte and high-value chemical substances similar to resins, adhesives, fuels and greases.
Lignin and Lignans as Renewable uncooked fabrics provides a multidisciplinary evaluation of the state of the art and destiny customers of lignin and lignans. The e-book discusses the starting place, constitution, functionality and functions of either sorts of compounds, describing the most assets and values of those items as carbon uncooked materials.
Topics lined include:
• Structure and physicochemical properties
• Lignin detection methods
• Biosynthesis of lignin
• Isolation methods
• Characterization and amendment of lignins
• Applications of converted and unmodified lignins
• Lignans: constitution, chemical and organic properties
• Future perspectives
This e-book is a finished source for researchers, scientists and engineers in academia and engaged on new probabilities for the applying of renewable uncooked materials.
