The adhesion of single and associated lignin chains to a substrate has been studied by means of single-molecule force spectroscopy (SMFS). Softwood kraft lignin (KL) and two lignin polymer models (dehydrogenation polymers, DHPs) based on coniferyl alcohol (DHPc.alc.) and coniferaldehyde (DHP c.ald.) were in focus. The desorption force from the " silicon nitride SMFS tip " for the KL was significantly greater than that of the DHPs. The higher desorption force was interpreted as being due to the...[Show more]
