Functional lignin nanomaterials

This is a umbrella theme of research carried out in Sustainable Materials Chemistry (SUSMATCHEM) research group in Stockholm University. We aim to make most out of lignin with minimal processing and chemical modification according to the principles of green chemistry. In addition to fundamental studies of structure and properties of lignin and lignin nanoparticles, we …
