Speech Title: Novel Lignin based Porous Composites

Abstract: Lignin is an important constituent of plant matter, and an abundant source of aromatic compounds. However, due to its heterogeneous nature only a small portion of lignin is commercially used. In this presentation, I will some of the recent developments on the effective utilization of lignin. In addition, I will present current research in my lab on utilizing lignin for fabricating porous materials.
