Lignin and lignans; advances in chemistry.


Lignin and lignans; advances in chemistry.

Ed. by Cyril Heitner et al.

CRC Press


651 pages




Offering 17 chapters and a section of color charts, this work for those in industry and academia highlights recent research in lignin and lignan chemistry, and will fuel further research in the emerging field of biorefining. Some specific areas explored include determination of lignin structure by chemical degradation, electronic spectroscopy of lignins, heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy of lignins, and thermal properties of isolated and in situ lignins. Separate chapters are devoted to the chemistry of alkaline pulping, pulp bleaching, oxidative and reductive bleaching agents in lignin-retaining bleaching, and biopulping and biobleaching. There is also material on the photochemistry of lignins and their pharmacological properties. Heitner is retired from Paprican.
