Ozonation as a quantitative tool to analyze the stereo structures of arylglycerol-β-aryl ether linkages was examined using wood meal, milled wood lignin, and a lignin model compound, 1-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-2-(2-methoxyphenoxy)-1,3-propanediol (veratrylglycerol-β-guaiacyl ether, VG). The procedure was improved. When mild postreduction was conducted for ozonation products, the total yield of erythronic and threonic acids from this model compound was 74%, which is 15% higher than the yield… CONTINUE READING
