Brief description Wood contains a wealth of biomaterials, such as cellulose which can be used to make biofuel and lignin which can be used to make pharmaceuticals. Separating out the cellulose is essential yet difficult, plus lignin must be broken up into smaller fragments; this project will look at using electrochemistry to achieve these processes more efficiently.
