191 Biobased Materials III: Lignin-Based Materials

Monday, November 9, 2015: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
250D (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Lignin is one of the three biopolymers present in forest biomass. It is rich in aromatic and various antioxidants and can act as a platform for various novel materials. This session is intended to focus on lignin based biomaterials, nanocarbons and nanocomposites.
