Impact of Temperature an Order of Magnitude Larger Than Electrical Potential in Lignin Electrolysis with Nickel

When converting lignin to valuable products by electrocatalysis with nickel catalyst, increasing temperature from 21 to 180 °C increases the formation rate of vanillin by 16.5 mg L−1 ⋅ h−1 whereas increasing electrical potential from 0 to 2 V decreases the formation rate of vanillin by 0.6 mg L−1 h−1. Abstract Lignin, a major component of plant...
