Vietnamese sap and lacquerware have a splendid history.
In order to promote a sustainable Vietnamese lacquer value chain, this review
was carried out for us to investigate at site Vietnamese lacquer cultivation
and processing of lacquer sap, then introduce the chemical components, HPLC-MS
characteristic, properity and
polymerization mechanism, as well as processing techniques of Vietnamese
lacquer sap. Combined with the experience of lacquer cultivation and
processing of Chinese lacquer, key problems to restrict the development of
lacquer value chain were analyzed in Vietnam, and some suggestions would also
be proposed in this investigation.
