- ... Synthesizing lignin-based copolymers would valorize a major coproduct stream from pulp and paper mills and biorefineries as well as reduce the dependence on petrochemical-based consumer goods. In this study, we used organosolv lignin isolated from hybrid poplar (Populus trichocarpa × P. deltoides) to generate lignin-containing methacrylate hydrogels. The copolymer hydrogels were synthesized by fir ...
