  1. 1. Biosynthesis, interactions, and structure of native lignin

    Author : Ioanna Sapouna; Lauren S. McKee; Francisco Vilaplana; Claudia Crestini; KTH; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; lignin; biomass valorization; extraction; tissue culture; lignin nanoparticles; wood aerogels; lignin; biomassavalorisering; extraktion; vävnadsodling; lignin nanopartiklar; trä aerogeler; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Wood biomass is an important resource in the development ofstrategies towards replacement of fossil-based materials. Woodcomprises cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin, in amounts thatvary between species. READ MORE

  2. 2. Protected Lignin Biorefining: Fundamental Insights on Lignin Reactivity

    Author : Maria Karlsson; Martin Lawoko; Åsa Emmer; Olena Sevastyanova; John Ralph; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sustainability; lignin; biorefinery; cyclic organosolv extraction; preserved structure; NMR; MALDI-TOF MS; Hållbarhet; lignin; bioraffinaderi; cyklisk organosolv extraktion; bevarad struktur; NMR; MALDI-TOF MS; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : The potential to utilize lignin, which constitutes as much as 15-30% of the biomass, needs further evaluation. In the transition towards a bioeconomy, lignin has the potential to replace fossil-based phenols. Attempts to valorize the available technical lignins are ongoing; however, that lignin suffers from molecular heterogeneity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biopolymers and materials from rapeseed straw biorefining

    Author : Antonia Svärd; Ulrica Edlund; Elisabet Brännvall; Stefan Willför; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Rapeseed canola straw; biorefinery; hemicelluloses; lignin; cellulose; cellulose nanoparticles; films; grafting; thermoplastic; biocomposites; rapshalm; bioraffinaderi; hemicellulosa; lignin; cellulosa; cellulosa nano partiklar; hemicellulosafilm; ympning; termoplastisk; biokompositer; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Rapeseed straw was fractionated through a hydrothermal process into its hemicellulose, lignin and cellulose components. In the first step, hemicellulose-rich fractions were extracted. Xylan-rich fractions with high molecular weight, 30,000 – 50,000 g/mol, were obtained at 110 °C and 1.5 M NaOH. READ MORE

  4. 4. Precipitation of Kraft Lignin from Aqueous Solutions

    Author : Tor Sewring; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; modified Poisson-Boltzmann model; particle size distribution; pair interactions; kraft lignin; acid precipitation; in situ measurements;

    Abstract : One way of improving the materials yield of a kraft paper pulp process, and simultaneously providing the industry with aromatic macromolecular structures, is to extract lignin from the black liquor. This can be done by lowering the pH of the black liquor, which will result in the precipitation of the lignin. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellulose-based electrical insulation materials : Dielectric and mechanical properties

    Author : Rebecca Hollertz; Lars Wågberg; Markus Biesalski; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose; dielectric materials; electrical insulation; nanocellulose; nanoparticles; streamer; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : The reliability of the generation and distribution of electricity is highly dependent on electrical insulation and is essential for the prosperity of our society and a ubiquitous part of our everyday life. The present study shows how some important material properties affect the electrical properties of cellulose-based electrical insulation systems which are used together with mineral oil in high-voltage transformers.
