Enzyme catalyzed oxidative polymerization of technical bagasse lignin and low-molecular-weight ultra-filtered kraft pulp lignin (UFL) were studied in methanol-water solution. Lignin was dissolved in methanol-water solution at pH 13 in steam heated autoclave at 130°C for 2h. The polymerization reaction was conducted at 40°C with a commercial laccase under oxygen saturation. The weight-average molecular weight (Mw) of original macromonomer and polymerized lignin were characterized with alkaline size exclusion Chromatograph (SEC) system. Enzyme treatment increased the molecular weight of both technical bagasse lignin and ultra-filtered lignin up to 20 times. The reaction time and the enzyme dosage were studied to obtain the maximal molecular weight.
