Investigating the kinetics of anisole : a simple lignin model compound
Thermochemical conversion of biomass is a potentially important process for providing a re-newable source of fuels and chemicals. One hurdle to an economically viable process is better control of the pyrolysis products of the biomass component lignin. Development of a kinetic model that could predict the impact of various operating conditions on the conversion and prod-uct yield could substantially accelerate commercial development. It is essential that the kinetic model describe the reactions at the molecular level with theoretically consistent rates, to confi-dently explore the various regions ...
