• 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 ...
    • Electrospinning of alcell lignin for the preparation of ORR electrocatalysts 

      Ruiz-Rosas, Ramiro; Cordero, Tomás; Rodriguez-Mirasol, Jose; Rosas, Juana María; García-Mateos, Francisco José (2019-10-28)
      Carbon fibers are one of the components of the electrode assemblies used in fuel cells. They are usually prepared from polyacrylonitrile, a non-renewable synthetic polymer. Lignin is a highly abundant biopolymer that is ...
    • 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 ...
