Abstract
Lignins are now considered as the vital aromatic renewable resource. They represent an excellent feedstock for the intensification of chemicals and polymers. Lignin is a highly abundant biopolymeric material that constitutes cellulose. One of the major problems is its indistinctly defined structure and quality variation in terms of origin, separation, and fragmentation processes, which mainly limits its utilization. Lignin is widely available as a major by-product of a number of industries involved in pulping and biorefinery industries. The notable properties of lignin, such as highly abundance, environmental friendly, low weight, CO2 neutrality, and its antioxidant, antimicrobial, and biodegradable nature and reinforcing capability, make it a perfect candidate for the development of polymer composite materials. Significant efforts are now being needed to effectively utilize waste lignin as one of the major components in polymer matrices for high-performance composite applications.
