Abstract

The biochemical processes of synthesis and self-organization of the components of the lignin-carbohydrate matrix lead to the formation of a complex multi-component system considered as a nanobiocomposite, which is a thermodynamically limited ordered system of biopolymers in quasi-equilibrium. The concept of the thermodynamic state of the lignin–carbohydrate matrix and the possibility of regulating the areas of thermodynamic compatibility of components due to chemical and/or physical impact allow to consider the supercritical fluid technologies (SCFTs) as a tool for directing changes in the biocomposite’s structure and properties at the molecular level and also as a way of creating essentially new technologies for the complex processing of plant raw materials.
