• Chemical and electrochemical modification of kraft lignin to value-added products 

      Pan, Ke (2012-11-10)
      Lignin is one of the most abundant biopolymers on earth, constituting approximately 30% of the dry weight of softwoods and 20% of hardwoods. It is a renewable, non-toxic, commercially available and low cost natural resource ...
    • Lignin modification to produce hydrophobic products 

      Alwadani, Norah (2017)
      Kraft lignin is not widely utilized for industrial applications. In this MSc work, kraft lignin was modified by grafting hydrophobic groups to produce hydrophobic materials. The main objective was to study the grafting of ...
    • Lignin-based flocculant and dispersant for wastewater treatment 

      Hasan, Agha (2018)
      The wastewaters produced from different industries contain fine and charged suspended particles and other impurities. Today, the removal of these colloidal particles from the wastewater has become a serious challenge for ...
    • Lignin-based hydrogels 

      Zerpa, Alyssa (2017)
      Currently, limited information is available on lignin-based hydrogels, but its potential in commercial applications presents a promising avenue for the utilization of lignocellulosic materials. Recent studies have employed ...
    • Sulfonation of kraft lignon to water soluble value added products 

      Inwood, John Paul William (2014-12-11)
      Kraft lignin is water insoluble and has limited end-use applications. The main objective of this MSc studies was to rend kraft lignin water soluble, and various value-added products including dispersants and flocculants. ...
