FEATURING SPECIAL CONTENT

FROM THE:

2016 PEERS Conference

Conventional coating methods are currently being challenged
by newly developed technologies that can result in products with
interesting properties and competitive prices. Versatile foam coating
is one such promising technology. Foam coating is carried out using
different foam application methods, and the viscoelastic nature of
the foam allows the use of a large variety of materials.
In this study, paper was coated with nanomaterials on a pilot
scale using a method based on slot die application combined with
foam destruction by absorption and infrared drying. A thin layer
of titanium dioxide/zinc oxide (TiO 2/ZnO) functionalized cellulose
nanofibrils (CNF) creates antimicrobial properties in the paper,
and a thin layer of CNF-TiO 2 alone has substantial ability to oxidize
nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen oxides (NOx). These results illustrate
methods that can be used to create novel functional properties for
different end-use applications. Thin functional layers could bring
added value to current products and also create opportunities to
introduce novel products for several industrial areas using web-type
manufacturing processes.

Lignin-polyurethane patents published worldwide in the past 30 years.

Given the rise in demand for sustainable renewable biofuels and
promising developments in cellulosic ethanol, the valorization of
lignin has become essential for biorefining operations, especially
with today's low-cost energy production state of affairs. In the past
40 years, numerous efforts have been devoted to incorporating
lignin and lignin derivatives into commercial polymeric materials.
One of the promising strategies is to use multifunctional lignin
macromolecules or oligomers as the replacement of polyols during
polyurethane synthesis.
In this review, the authors examined recent advances in fabricating polyurethane foams, films, and adhesives with modified
or unmodified lignins. The mechanical and thermal properties of
these lignin-based polyurethanes were correlated to their formulations, lignin molecular weight, and polydispersity, as well as the
structural features of different lignin preparations. Recalcitrance
and strong intermolecular interactions of lignin macromolecules
