Enzymatic demethylation of Kraft lignin for lignin-based phenol-formaldehyde resin applications

Wood-rot fungi from the Boreal Forest of Canada were studied for their ability to demethylate Kraft lignin (KL). Demethylation by the action of enzymes (O-demethylases) removed the O-methyl/methoxyl groups of lignin liberating methanol, and …

Sustainable porous carbons from garlic peel biowaste and KOH activation with an excellent CO2 adsorption performance

Biomass is regarded as promising low-cost carbon source while the direct biomass pyrolysis usually shows low-surface-area or even non-porous, and therefore not useful for CO2 capture. Here, garlic peel was chemically activated by KOH to obtain …
