      Abstract:

          The presently disclosed and/or claimed inventive concept(s)   relates generally to lignin nanoparticle dispersions.  More particularly, but not by   way of limitation, the presently disclosed and/or claimed   inventive concept(s) relates, in one non-limiting embodiment, to   a mild process of preparing lignin nanoparticle   dispersions.  The   presently disclosed and/or claimed inventive concept(s) also   relates generally to the compositions and methods of making   lignin nanoparticle derivatives and dispersions of the   same.  Additionally,   the presently disclosed and/or claimed inventive concept(s)   relates generally to the compositions and methods of making   lignin nanoparticle—polymer complexes comprising the derivatized   and/or non-derivatized lignin nanoparticle dispersions and   polymers. Further, the presently disclosed and/or claimed   inventive concept(s) relates generally to a method of using at   least one of the lignin nanoparticle dispersions, derivatized   lignin nanoparticle dispersions, and/or the lignin   nanoparticle—polymer complex to deposit lignin nanoparticles and   to impart rinse-resistant properties, such as hydrophilic   properties, to substrates, or function as tunable nanoparticle   surfactants in a wide variety of industrial   applications.
