Perspective Solvents for Lignin Depolimerization: Stability under Supercritical Conditions

Thermal stability under supercritical conditions of methanol, ethanol, 2-propanol and acetic acid, most suitable as solvents in depolymerization of technical lignins to lowmolecular aromatic compounds, was studied. Among them at 450 °C 2-propanol is the most stable. Acetic acid is almost completely decomposed within 4 h, while the addition of water significantly increases its thermal stability. Chemical composition of gaseous and liquid products of thermal decomposition of solvents was studied using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.

Key words: monohydric alcohols, acetic acid, lignin, stability, supercritical state
