Technical lignins can be produced with many different processes, which influence significantly the properties of the resulting lignins. Besides the botanical origin of the lignin (plant species), the chemistry that is taking place during the isolation of these lignins is indeed the main factor that will determine the behaviour of separated lignins in their different fields of application.
Besides classical processes of lignin separation (Kraft process, Sulphite process, Soda process) that are largely used in the paper industry, multiple new processes have been investigated, but none of them has so far reached industrial application (organosolv processes, various biorefinery processes).
The topic contains two main types of papers: lignin production (extraction of the lignin from residues in biomass processes) and lignin modification (improvement of functionalities and structure for specific purposes).
The basic overview report on lignin production, as it was in 2004, is available just below (first file on the top of the list). This report is the base and will not be updated. Information about new lignin production processes, that are not in the overview report, can be found in the item that follows. Lignin fractionation is included in this chapter and not under modifications.
A general overview on lignin modification can be found in the first paper in the corresponding section (Malherbe 2010, pp. 11, in the second part after the papers on production). Further papers with new developments on modification are continuously appearing in all the items that follow this first paper.
