Lignin is currently extensively investigated as a raw material for existing and novel hybrid polymers. The multicopper-containing enzymes, Laccases (benzenediol: oxygen oxidoreductases, EC.1.10.3.2), play a major role in activating lignin by oxidation, thereby increasing the interaction between lignin and siloxane precursors, resulting in interpenetrating polymers. In this article, the authors synthesize lignin-siloxane hybrid coating films to produce hybrid functional polymers that can be used as adhesives, coating materials, and/or multifunctionalized thin-coating films.
