    During biomass fast pyrolysis process, the occurrence of free radical reactions generates a certain amount of free radical intermediates. Hydrogen free radicals from hydrogen donors will stabilize these intermediates to effectively regulate the distribution of char and high grade bio-oil to achieve value-added utilization of biomass. This paper summarizes the effects of hydrogen donors(1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene, linear alcohols, organic macromolecule polymer, etc.) on the fast pyrolysis of biomass, and the hydrogen free radicals supply mechanisms from different hydrogen donors. Afterwards, the commonness and the characteristics of biomass pyrolysis with the addition of different hydrogen donors are concluded. Finally, perspective researches are proposed to extend the selection of hydrogen donors and optimize the regulation of pyrolytic products.

    The research progresses in recent years in the functional materials of hemicelluloses including membrane, hydrogel, absorbent, medical material and catalyst support were reviewed. In addition, the application prospect of hemicelluloses-based functional materials was addressed. Hemicelluloses-based membrane can be used as packing material and food wrapping material, but the problem of lower strength and flexibility should be solved. Hemicelluloses-based hydrogel can be prepared by chemical and physical cross-linking and utilized in medical and environmental fields, but the biocompatibility of chemical cross-linking hydrogel and strength of physical cross-linking hydrogel should be further improved. Furthermore, the hemicelluloses can be applied as absorbent for cleaning waster water and air, as medical material for drug sustained release and antibiosis, and as catalyst support for chemical synthesis. In the future, the hemicelluloses would be expected to be used in the fields of photoelectrical material, tissue engineering material, et al.

    ZUO Songlin, ZHANG Jie, LIU Junli, SUN Kang
    2017, 37 (6):  19-27.  doi: 10.3969/j.issn.0253-2417.2017.06.003
    Abstract ( 639 )   PDF (1139KB) ( 274 )   Save
    In order to elucidate the patterns of vacuum desorption of volatile organic compounds(VOCs) from activated carbons, the vacuum desorption curves of the VOCs as a function of the temperature were investigated in a fixed bed by choosing 11 types of VOCs (including alkanes, aromatics, alcohols and ketones, and so on) of different chemical structures and molecular sizes. The results showed that vacuum desorption was a highly potential technology for recovering VOCs. Compared with conventional thermal desorption methods, vacuum desorption significantly reduced VOCs desorption temperatures, and allowed high desorption efficiency of greater than 99% and more reuse of activated carbons. The polar surfaces of activated carbon significantly weakened the desorption of alcohols while the non-polar surface was conducive. The surface property of activated carbons barely affected the desorption of the non-polar VOCs. Further, adsorbed alcohols molecules such as methanol and ethanol were arranged perpendicular to the surface of activated carbon in a way that hydroxyls of alcohols directly contacted with the carbon surface. This arrangement led to carboxyl groups of activated carbons prone to be removed or be changed into lactone in the vacuum thermal desorption process.

    A cardanol-based phosphate epoxidized(CGEP) was synthesized using cardanol.as feedstock. The curing system of bisphenol A epoxy resin(E-51) and isophorone diamine(IPDA) was modified by CGEP in different mass ratios. The influences of CGEP on the viscosity of E-51 and on the properties of cured epoxy resins were investigated. The microstructure of fracture surface of cured epoxy resins was characterized by scanning electron microscope(SEM). It was found that CGEP has significantly diluted the E-51 and involved in the curing reaction of epoxy resin. When the content of CGEP was 15 wt% with respect to E-51, the impact strength of cured epoxy resins reached the maximum 22.06 kJ/m2. When the content of CGEP was 20% with respect to E-51, the tensile strength and bending strength of cured epoxy resins reached the maximum 96.19 MPa and 99.70 MPa, respectively. With the increase of the amount of CGEP from 0% to 25%, the glass transition temperature(Tg) of the cured product decreased from 144.82℃ to 119.10℃, while the oxygen index increased from 19.0 to 23.0. SEM analysis showed that the toughness of cured epoxy resins improved obviously.

    In order to study the effect of alkali lignin on corn stalk pelleting process and the bonding mechanism, the influences of four parameters(alkali lignin adding amount, temperature, moisture and pressure) on three technical indicators(relaxed density, radial compressive strength and specific energy consumption) were investigated. The compression molding experiment showed that when alkali lignin adding amount increased from 0 to 20%, the relaxed density of corn stalk pellets increased from 1 005 kg/m3 to 1 157 kg/m3 and the radial compressive strength increased from 1 353 N to 1 930 N. This results suggested that increasing of alkali lignin could promote the corn stalk pelleting process. The thermal transition temperatures of corn stalk and alkali lignin were also studied by differential scanning calorimetry(DSC). The results showed that the glass transition temperatures of corn straw and alkali lignin were between 92.5-103℃ and 61-137℃, respectively. In the thermal transition temperature range, 100℃ was the lowest specific energy consumption with suitable moisture content. The suitable temperature range for alkali lignin bonding was 100-130℃.The microstructure of pellets showed that alkali lignin occurred melting transition after melting temperature and then formed ‘molten combination’ and ‘mechanical interlocking’ inside the particles. The suitable alkali lignin adding amount for bonding was 10%-15%.

    Biomass-based thermoplastic elastomer materials derived from cellulose, furfural and grease were prepared by "graft from" ATRP using ethyl cellulose(EC), tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate(THFMA) and lauryl methacrylate(LMA). FT-IR, 1H NMR and GPC were applied to characterize the structure of graft copolymers, and proved the successful preparation of graft copolymer. The DSC analysis showed that the Tg of EC graft copolymers were between 13℃ and 27℃. The mechanical properties test showed that the tensile strength increased from 5.1 MPa to 13.7 MPa with the increasing of THFMA content in the feed. Compared to the linear copolymer which has the same THFMA/LMA composition, the EC graft copolymer possessed 3.7 times higher tensile strength. It is worth noting that the EC content in the feeding is between 0.91%-1.42%, which indicated that a small amount of EC could greatly improve the mechanical properties of graft copolymer.

    Bamboo sawdust was used as the raw material for pressurized liquefaction to obtain methyl glucoside and four kinds of phenols at different temperatures. The products composition and structure were analyzed by various methods. In addition, the variation of structure of lignocellulosic biomass in liquefaction process and the formation mechanism of liquefied products were investigated. The results showed that when liquefaction conditions were 40 g bamboo sawdust, m(bamboo):m(CH3OH)=1:12, the dosage of sulfuric acid 1 g, reaction time 10 min, and reaction temperature 200℃, the yield of liquefied product was 87.83% with 48.17%methyl glucoside and 39.66% phenols. The components and contents of methyl glucoside and phenols were characterized by gas chromatography-mass spectrometer(GC-MS) and high performance liquid chromatography(HPLC) analysis. The results showed that the degradation temperatures of cellulose and hemicellulose were low and the high temperature was beneficial to the degradation of lignin. The liquefaction residue was characterized by X-ray diffraction(XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectrum analysis(FT-IR). The results showed that the crystal index of cellulose in the residue of 120-200℃ degradation was 6.12%-40.33% higher than that in the raw material. The reason could be explained as that the decomposition of lignin and hemicellulose in the amorphous region was destroyed partly during 120-200℃, however, the structure of amorphous region and crystalline region was destroyed completely in the 220℃.

    The thermogravimetric analysis(TG) was carried out on the synthesized biomass samples with different proportions of microcrystalline cellulose, xylan and lignin. The co-solvent liquefaction behavior and the synergistic effect of the three-components in the co-solvent liquefaction process were obtained. When the temperature was lower than 350℃, the hemicellulose had a certain promoting effect on the degradation of cellulose; when it was higher than 350℃, there was a significant inhibitory effect. Hemicellulose and cellulose inhibited the lignin degradation; and then the extreme vertex method was used to select the typical ratio of synthesized biomass. The pyrolysis liquefaction products of the co-solvent of synthesized biomass were investigated by pyrolysis chromatography mass spectrometry(Py-GC/MS). The effects of the components of biomass on the co-solvent pyrolysis products were obtained. The results indicated that higher percentage of lignin in synthesized biomass promoted the formation of acids. The existence of cellulose and hemicellulose restrained the production of phenols during lignin co-solvent pyrolysis. More esters were obtained from synthesized samples co-solvent pyrolysis, different proportion of three-components promote the formation of esters.

The yield, purity, molecular weight and hydrophilic group content of lignosulfonate fractions were characterized and the performances of lignosulfonate fractions as dust suppressant were also compared. The results showed that ultrafiltration could effectively fractionate the lignosulfonate and the yields of LG-1, LG-2 and LG-3 were 58.32%, 24.50% and 17.18%, respectively. The weight average molecular weights of the three fractions were 4 841, 15 239 and 37 768 and the polydispersities were 2.78, 2.40 and 2.06, respectively. With the increase of lignosulfonate molecular weight, the ash and sulfonic acid group content decreased while the total sugar content increased. The ultrafiltration fractionation had significant effects on the performance of lignosulfonate as dust suppressant. With the increase of molecular weight cut-off, the water absorption capacity, compression strength and anti-wind erosion ability of lignosulfonate increased by 96.43%, 55.11% and 63.07%, respectively, which suggested that lignosulfonate fraction LG-3 with higher molecular weight performed better as dust suppressant. SEM analysis suggested that after spraying of lignosulfonate solution, a bonding layer was formed between sand grains and played the role of cohesiveness and incrustation for the sand grains. Moreover, the phenomenon was more obvious with the increase of lignosulfonate molecular weight.
