• Alcohol decomposition on basic/acid lignin-derived submicron diameter carbon fibers 

      García-Mateos, Francisco J.; Rosas, Juana María; Rodriguez-Mirasol, Jose; Cordero, Tomás (2018-07-12)
      The use of lignin, the second most abundant polymer in nature, along with a simple and versatile technique, electrospinning, represents an advantageous and promising approach for the preparation of carbon fibers. In ...
    • Effect of phosphorous groups on the stabilization and activation of low-cost lignin fibers prepared by electrospinning 

      Berenguer-Betrian, Raul; Rodríguez-Mirasol, José; Cordero, Tomás (2013-11-25)
      The feasible wider use of carbon fibers in many of their current and potential applications demands a reduction of their manufacturing costs. In this sense, the use of lignin as an abundant, renewable and low-cost carbonaceous ...
    • Novel lignin-based fibrous carbon materials 

      Berenguer-Betrian, Raul; García-Mateos, Francisco; Rodríguez-Mirasol, José; Cordero, Tomás (2014-07-28)
      Lignin is (and will be) an important co-product in many lignocellulosic biomass-derived industries, such as pulp and paper mills (and the future biorefineries, when the concept of bio-economy be developed). The development ...
