Description

Lignin constitutes a vast natural resource, which can be found in various forms depending on where it is obtained and how it is isolated. To most easily isolate lignin, we must understand more thoroughly its chemical structure and how it is bound to the other wall components. To use lignin more effectively and develop new uses for it, we must understand its properties. Likewise, the most effective use of lignin-containing materials such as wood and wood products depends on understanding how their properties are affected by the properties of lignin.
