Ammonium Lignosulfonate Uses

Used in Agriculture

1.Improve soil structure,increase harvest,improve quality of fruits.

2.Increase root vitality, promote nutrient uptake,increased chlorophyll synthesis,promote seed germination.

3.Foliar applications can be timed to meet the needs of specific plant growth requirements such as to activate vegetative growth, flowering, fruit set, or filling and ripening of fruits.

4.Chlorophyll development within plant leaves is more pronounced when lignin present in the foliar fertiliser. lignosulfonate also increase the concentration of messenger ribonucleic acids (m RNA) In plant cells. Messenger RNA is essential for many biochemical processes within cells. Activation of several biochemical processes results in an increase in enzyme synthesis and an increase in the protein of the leaves.

Used in Industry

Ammonium Lignosulfonate provide three basic functions in dyestuff compositions:

1 They assist in reducing the dye particles to a fine size;

2 They maintain a dispersing medium for the dyestuff; and

3They are used as a diluent.

The advantages of employing sulfonated lignins as dispersants in dyestuff compositions are based on their unique physical properties which include good compatibility with many dye systems, outstanding dispersant characteristics at ambient and elevated temperatures, and availability.

There are certain disadvantages in employing lignins, whether they are sulfite lignins or sulfonated kraft lignins, as dispersants. Negative factors in the use of such lignins as dyestuff additives relate to problems of high inorganic salt content, i.e., electrolyte content, when lowered in pH, foaming, high pH, fiber staining, poor heat stability, and high viscosity. These adverse properties are troublesome to dyers and many attempts have been made to overcome these and other disadvantages
