Summary

Fluctuating petroleum prices and their depletion in near the future have forced the world to investigate opportunities for substituting petroleum resources with environment-friendly forest product chemistry. They are to provide a potential alternative to petroleum-based materials that should be eco-friendly, economically feasible and non-toxic. For example, the extraction of natural products, functional utilization of epoxy soybean oil, and rosin molecular orientation design are all effective directional uses of green chemistry and have been used as green monomers or intermediates for polymer preparation, green biomedicine and polymer materials.

 

This topic will focus on the application and preparation of forest product chemistry, such as process path and method of biomass conversion to chemicals, the latest progress of multifunctional and comprehensive bio-based forest product chemistry.


Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

• Biomass conversion;

• Bio-based copolymers;

• Synthesis of functional polymers

• Functional self-assembly materials from biomass

• Green biomedicine

    Abstract Dehydroabietyl polyethylene glycol glycidyl ether-grafted hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) polymer surfactant (DA(EO)5GE-g-HEC) was prepared using ring-opening polymerization with biobased rosin and hydroxyethyl cellulose as feedstocks. Dehydroabietyl polyethylene glycol glycidyl ether (DA(EO)5GE) was formed by condensation of dehydroabietyl alcohol polyoxyethylene ether (Rosin derivative: DA(EO)5H) and epichlorohydrin. The grafting degree of DA(EO)5GE-g-HEC was manipulated by adjusting the mass ratio of HEC and DA(EO)5GE and confirmed by EA. According to the formula, when m(HEC)/m(DA(EO)2GE) was 1:1~1:5, the grafting rate of DA(EO)5GE in DA(EO)5GE-g-HEC varied from 34.43% to 38.33%. The surface activity and foam properties of DA(EO)5GE-g-HEC aqueous solution were studied. The results showed that… More >
