CHAPTER 3

Lignin Depolymerization/Deconstruction Reactions During Fast Pyrolysis

Lignin is the second most abundant biopolymer and a major potential source for the production of phenolic based materials and aromatic chemicals. Pyrolysis chemistry and the degradation mechanism of lignin are considerably different from those of cellulose or whole biomass due to its structural characteristics. Details about thermal degradation behavior and pyrolysis chemistry of lignin will be presented followed by discussions of continuous pyrolysis of lignin and catalytic pyrolysis.
