  3. 3. Synthesis and Investigation of Nitrile-Containing Polymers Inspired by Lignin

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Centrum för analys och syntes

    Author : Tobias Lindborg; [2022]
    Keywords : Lignin; Polymer; Renewable; Bioresource; Glass transition temperature; Nitrile; Polymer technology; Chemistry; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The lignin-inspired derivatives coniferyl aldehyde and sinapyl aldehyde were used to prepare nitrile-containing methacrylate monomers with the aim to synthesize bio-based polymers exhibiting high glass transition temperatures (Tgs). The aldehydes were initially transformed to the corresponding nitriles and then underwent methacrylation before being polymerised by free-radical polymerisation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization methodology to assess the mechanical properties of delignified birch/PMMA transparent wood biocomposites

    University essay from KTH/Fiber- och polymerteknologi
