Molecular Basis of the Interactions and Recalcitrance of Lignocellulosic Biomass

Lignocellulosic biomass represents the main renewable resource from the biosphere for the production of biofuels, platform chemicals and bio-based materials. Lignocellulose consists of a complex polymeric network of cellulose microfibrils embedded in a matrix of hemicelluloses, pectins, and lignins with exquisite organization from the nano- to the microscale. However, the heterogeneity of the lignocellulose polymeric …

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 …

Sustainable added-value lignin materials for specific ions and molecules separation

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 …
