  • The Complexity of Lignin Thermal Degradation in the Isothermal Context 

    López-Beceiro, Jorge; Díaz-Díaz, Ana María; Álvarez García, Ana; Tarrío-Saavedra, Javier; Naya, Salvador; Artiaga, Ramón (MDPI, 2021-07)
    Abstract:Thermal degradation of lignin in nitrogen atmosphere is evaluated by linear heating and isothermal tests. While linear heating suggests that thermal decomposition in the 200–400 °C range mainly consists of a single ...
