In this work, lignin-containing polyester polyol (LPES) was successfully synthesized by vacuum melting method with lignin instead of polyol, and then reacted with isocyanate and chain extender to obtain lignin-based polyurethane elastomer (LPUE). The effects of lignin as reactive raw material, chain extender, and filler on the structure, thermostability, mechanical performance, and self-healing properties of elastomers were systematically studied, respectively. The comprehensive mechanical properties of the obtained materials were significantly enhanced after the introduction of lignin, especially the maximum tensile strength increased to 26. Read More
