The increasing global climate warming has urged the researchers to work toward reducing the use of fuels on a daily basis. It is thus believed that by lowering the weight of the vehicles the use of fuels could be reduced as the requirement of power and money will also be lessened. In the Chemical Engineering Journal, the team from Kanazawa University chemically transformed an industrial waste product in order to process it into lightweight structural material. It is thus believed the new invention will enhance the economic status of the fuel in the private and commercial transportation industry. The newly developed Kraft lignin is a byproduct of a common wood pulping procedure. Generally, this byproduct is burned in the paper mills to generate power owing to its low use for other applications.
The researchers thought of chemically processing Kraft lignin into useful componentsfor the environmental sustainability of paper production. The acetylation of this polymer is a critical step that has been optimized through controlled reaction for enhancing its compatibility with other polymers termed polyacrylonitrile. The high quality carbon fibers helped produce modified composite. The researchers found the polydispersity of the Kraft lignin to remain stable and produce only benign side product such as acetone.
Furthermore, the mixing of Kraft lignin with polyacrylonitrile helped form a dope solution for electrospinning with compatible polymer segments that led to the development of quality carbon fibers. The researchers stated that the carbon fiber mats made using this polymer contained uniform fibers without any comprise in fiber quality. The threefold improvement in the mechanical strength by making attributablechanges to the graphitic structure of the materials helps generate better polymerinteractions within the aligned polymeric network.
