Lignocellulosics: Functional Lignocellulosics and Nanotechnology: Renewable Feedstock for (Tailored) Functional Materials and Nanotechnologygives a comprehensive overview of recent advances in using lignocellulosic substrates in materials science and nanotechnology. The functionalization and processing of lignocellulosics are described via a number of examples that cover films, gels, sensors, pharmaceutics, and energy storage.

In addition to the research related to functional cellulose nanomaterials, there has been an increased interest in research on lignin and lignocellulosics. Lignin is associated with cellulose in plants via biosynthesis, and is commonly extracted from the cellulose material to gain lignin-free raw material of high cellulose content.

In addition, lignin as a valuable material has gained a lot of attention in the last few years. Lignin research has shifted from purely extraction and fundamental characterization, now also focusing on the preparation of exciting materials, such as nanoparticles. This book explains how utilizing biomaterials as a raw material allows ambitious reconstruction of smart materials that are green and multifunctional.

  • Provides a detailed description of functional lignocellulosic materials and their properties
