Solution-state 2D NMR of Ball-milled Plant Cell Wall Gels in DMSO-d 6

  title={Solution-state 2D NMR of Ball-milled Plant Cell Wall Gels in DMSO-d 6},
  author={Hoon Kim and John Ralph and Takuya Akiyama},
  journal={BioEnergy Research},
Although finely divided ball-milled whole cell walls do not completely dissolve in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), they readily swell producing a gel. Solution-state two-dimensional (2D) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) of this gel, produced directly in the NMR tube, provides an interpretable structural fingerprint of the polysaccharide and lignin components of the wall without actual solubilization, and without structural modification beyond that inflicted by the ball milling and ultrasonication… CONTINUE READING
