Lignin, Cosolvents, and Biomass Pretreatments: Studies of Deuterated THF, Organosolv-Water Cosolvent Biomass Interactions, and Coarse-grained models of Lignin.

 

 

 

Lignocellulosic biomass is a promising renewable source of fuels, chemical precursors, and materials. Unfortunately, due to its natural recalcitrance and wide variability it is current economically infeasible. Here I report on our current efforts to better understand: 1) biomass under novel four different organosolv-water cosolvents, 2) physical properties of one particular deuterated cosolvent system (D8THF-Water), and 3) Lignin architecture-conformation relationships.
