About this book

This book is designed to provide wide understanding of lignin carbon fiber processes, chemistry, mechanisms, and techniques that will help in further development of lignin carbon fiber for automobile, aerospace, marine, and sports equipment applications. Each step in the processing of lignin carbon fibers is presented as a separate chapter so that issues concerning the processes are exhaustively discussed. Basic scientific principles governing each stage of lignin carbon fiber processing, current state of research and mechanisms behind the processes are illustrated for better understanding. This is the first book to address the entire scope of lignin carbon fiber processing including; extraction, quantification, purification, melt processing, stabilization, carbonization, optimization of processes, and characterization. 

  • Presents detailed information on the chemistry, processing, principles and properties of bio-sourced lignin for carbon fiber production;
  • Highlights techniques of recovery and properties of lignin from agricultural waste sources;
  • Addresses applications in automobile, aircraft, marine, and sport industries;
  • Provides insight into the lignin complex macromolecular system, the role of lignin chemistry as it relates to carbon fiber production and the evolution of lignin carbon fiber structure during processing.

About the authors

Emmanuel Akpan is a Research Scientist at the Institute for Composite Materials in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Currently, his research focuses on the development of bio-based polymer composites for heat deflection and fire retardant applications in automobiles.

Samson Adeosun is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. He has been working on the development of bio-based composite materials for lightweight applications. Current research in his lab focuses on the extraction and purification of lignin from wastes sources for carbon fiber applications.
