Sustainable added-value lignin materials for specific ions and molecules separation
Treesearch research themes:
“Lignin is the second most abundant renewable resource from biomass, highly available in Sweden with large forest areas. The Project is aimed at the development of effective approaches for synthesis of new value-added materials from lignin. In the proposed Project the usage of different types of lignin is suggested for synthesis of novel lignin-based and lignin-inorganic oxides composites for specific separation of ions and molecules from aqueous solutions. The developed materials will be efficient and inexpensive materials with high sorption capacity, selectivity and good kinetics, high biocompatibility, stability and ability to reuse.
