Novel Lignin Based Thermoset Resins
Treesearch research themes:
The project focuses on synthetic pathways to modify lignin to introduce chemical groups suitable for cross-linking reactions and elaboration on the mechanical properties of the formed materials. The main focus is allylation, introducing an allyl ether functionallity selectively on phenols, and thiol-ene reactions for cross-linking of the thermoset resin. This is performed on technical lignin fractions to produce materials with different properties.
