Smooth Model Surfaces from Lignin Derivatives. I. Preparation and Characterization

Norgren, Magnus; Notley, Shannon; Majtnerova, Andrea; Gellerstedt, Goran


Lignin model surfaces were prepared from aqueous alkaline solutions by spin-coating on silica wafers. Films of thicknesses between 20 and 140 nm were easily made by variations in the spinning rate or in the lignin concentration. The roughnesses of the lignin surfaces were relatively low, approximately 1.1 nm (rms) on an area of 25 μm2, as determined by atomic force microscopy imaging. The stability of the lignin films in aqueous solutions was found to be excellent. No changes in the thickness...[Show more]
