  • Fractionation and DOSY NMR as analytical tools : from model polymers to a technical lignin 

    Montgomery, James; Lancefield, Christopher Stuart; Miles-Barrett, Daniel; Ackermann, Katrin; Bode, Bela Ernest; Westwood, Nicholas James; Lebl, Tomas (2017-11-30) - Journal article
    One key challenge hindering the valorization of lignin is its structural complexity. Artificial lignin-like materials provide a stepping stone between the simplicity of model compounds and the complexity of lignin. Here, ...
  • The synthesis and analysis of lignin-bound Hibbert ketone structures in technical lignins 

    Miles-Barrett, Daniel; Neal, Andrew; Hand, Calum; Montgomery, James; Panovic, Isabella; Ojo, Oluwarotimi Stephen; Lancefield, Christopher Stuart; Cordes, David B.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Lebl, Tomas; Westwood, Nicholas J. (2016-11-14) - Journal article
    Understanding the structure of technical lignins resulting from acid-catalysed treatment of lignocellulosic biomass is important for their future applications. Here we report an investigation into the fate of lignin under ...
  • Unravelling the Enigma of ligninOX : can the oxidation of lignin be controlled? 

    Guo, Haiwei; Miles-Barrett, Daniel; Neal, Andrew; Zhang, Tao; Li, Changzhi; Westwood, Nicholas James (2017-11-09) - Journal article
    As societal challenges go, the development of efficient biorefineries as a means of reducing our dependence on petroleum refineries is high on the list. One of the core strengths of the petroleum refinery is its ability ...
