Structural characterization of wheat straw lignin as revealed by analytical pyrolysis, 2D-NMR, and reductive cleavage methods.
The structure of the lignin in wheat straw has been investigated by a combination of analytical pyrolysis, 2D-NMR, and derivatization followed by reductive cleavage (DFRC). It is aExpand

Monolignol Ferulate Transferase Introduces Chemically Labile Linkages into the Lignin Backbone
Constructed for Deconstruction Lignin provides strength to wood but also impedes efficient degradation when wood is used as biofuel. Wilkerson et al. (p. 90) engineered poplar to produce lignin thatExpand

Tricin, a Flavonoid Monomer in Monocot Lignification1[OPEN]
Tricin, a flavonoid, is a lignification monomer in grasses where it functions as a nucleation site for lignin polymer formation. Tricin was recently discovered in lignin preparations from wheatExpand

Occurrence of naturally acetylated lignin units.
This work examines the occurrence of native acetylated lignin in a large set of vascular plants, including both angiosperms and gymnosperms, by a modification of the so-called Derivatization FollowedExpand

Pretreatment with laccase and a phenolic mediator degrades lignin and enhances saccharification of Eucalyptus feedstock
BackgroundBiofuel production from lignocellulosic material is hampered by biomass recalcitrance towards enzymatic hydrolysis due to the compact architecture of the plant cell wall and the presence ofExpand

Analysis of lignin–carbohydrate and lignin–lignin linkages after hydrolase treatment of xylan–lignin, glucomannan–lignin and glucan–lignin complexes from spruce wood
Xylan–lignin (XL), glucomannan–lignin (GML) and glucan–lignin (GL) complexes were isolated from spruce wood, hydrolyzed with xylanase or endoglucanase/β-glucosidase, and analyzed by analyticalExpand

Monolignol acylation and lignin structure in some nonwoody plants: a 2D NMR study.
Lignins from three nonwoody angiosperms were analyzed by 2D NMR revealing important differences in their molecular structures. The Musa textilis milled-wood-lignin (MWL), with a syringyl-to-guaiacylExpand

Structural characterization of milled wood lignins from different eucalypt species
Abstract The chemical structure of milled-wood lignins from Eucalyptus globulus, E. nitens, E. maidenii, E. grandis, and E. dunnii was investigated. The lignins were characterized by analyticalExpand
