Lignosulfonate used in leather tanning

The lignosulfonates are long explored waste or by-products of the pulp and paper making industry.  Similar in many ways to tannins, many have studied and researched ways to use them in tanning.  In the past they have been found only minimally useful as fillers, coloring (poor) agents, etc., but never as tanning agents.  However, one must now stop and consider the changes in tanning information and look at the phenolic character as well as the molecular size of these compounds which may under just the right conditions lend them to a new combination tannage that really could be useful.

Since they are natural materials that would be bio-degradable.  They have large molecular weights on the order of tannin compounds.  They have active phenolic character, though much less than most tannins.  They produce a brown color similar to tannins and have many common chemical and physical characteristic like tannins.  They are available in huge quantities at very reasonable prices.  On the other hand, many of the best minds in the industry have tried for decades to use them. use 2%-3% Lignosulfonate during pretanning process(before adding Chrome or vegetable tannin)is to increase the tan’s penetration time and uptake into hide and shortens the tanning time.

Calcium lignosulfonate

Calcium lignosulfonate (Calcium lignosulphonate) is a multi-component polymer anionic surfactant, the appearance of a pale yellow to dark brown powder, slightly fragrant odor, a molecular weight generally between 800 and 10,000, with a very strong dispersion, adhesion, chelate. Usually spent cooking liquor from the pulping acid (or sulfite pulping), and spray drying. May contain up to 30% reducing sugars. Soluble in water but insoluble in any ordinary organic solvents. 1% aqueous solution having a pH value of about 3 to 11.

About Lignosulphonate

Lignosulphonate is an organic substance binding the cells, fibres and vessels which constitute wood and the lignified elements of plants, as in straw. After cellulose, it is the most abundant renewable carbon source on Earth. Between 40 and 50 million tons per annum are produced worldwide as a mostly non commercialized waste product.
It is not possible to define the precise structure of lignosulphonate as a chemical molecule. All lignosulphonates show a certain variation in their chemical composition. However the definition common to all is a dendritic network polymer of phenyl propene basic units.
There are two principal categories of lignosulphonate: those which are sulphur bearing and those which are sulphur-free. It is the sulphur bearing lignosulphonates which have to date been commercialized. These include lignosulphonates (world annual production of 500,000 tons) and Kraft lignosulphonates (under 100,000 tons p.a.). Due to the lack of suitable industrial processes, the sulphur-free lignosulphonates are as yet non-commercialized.
As a natural and renewable raw material, obtainable at an affordable cost, lignosulphonate’s substitution potential extends to any products currently sourced from petrochemical substances. The areas in which lignosulphonate is applicable include:
1) Multy-polarity related products
Lignosulphonate contains both hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups. Specific treatments can strengthen either characteristic for particular applications as in emulsions and dispersants.
2) Materials
Binders, thermoset, etc. Lignosulphonate is a natural branched and crosslinked network polymer which lends itself to use in materials.
3) Agriculture
Lignosulphonate and lignosulphonate derived products play an important role in the formation of soils and in plant and animal nutrition.
4) High purity / value applications
High purity support materials or active substances: lignosulphonate can be used as support materials for food and cosmetic applications comprising gels or emulsifiers; specially prepared lignosulphonates are suitable as an active substance with anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. These qualities have already been explored and could play an important role in the future.
