Description

Natural Polyphenols from Wood: Tannin and Lignin An Industrial Perspective is a detailed guide to the sourcing and processing of tannin and lignin for valuable advanced applications across areas such as fuels, chemicals, drugs, and food. Drawing on the latest academic research and patent literature, this book provides strong practical understanding of the use of these valuable materials in novel industrial applications. This book introduces natural polyphenols from wood and the fundamental aspects of carbon management within the tree. In-depth presentation of extraction and characterization methods is followed by an extensive coverage of practical and industrial applications of wood polyphenols.

This is an essential resource for researchers and advanced students working with lignin or tannin, and across biopolymer science, biomass, wood chemistry, paper, wood adhesives, polymer materials, renewable resources, and biotechnology. It also supports industrial R&D and scientists working with wood polyphenols or bio-based polymers.

Key Features

  • This book re-evaluates wood polyphenols from an industrial perspective, revealing the latest techniques and drawing on patent literature.
  • It addresses fundamental issues of wood polyphenols, such as carbon cycle, wood fractionation, structure, and properties.
  • It offers a comprehensive review of practical applications, including lignin depolymerization, wood reconstruction, fuels, chemicals, drugs, and food.

Readership

Researchers and advanced students in biopolymer science, biomass, wood chemistry, paper, wood adhesives, polymer materials, renewable resources, and biotechnology. Industrial R&D and scientists working with wood polyphenols or bio-based polymers.
