To mimic the lignin polymerization process, mats of bacterial cellulose and of a pectin/cellulose composite were used as a host matrix for in vitro polymerization of coniferyl alcohol. A diffusion cell was used to allow the diffusion of both hydrogen peroxide and coniferyl alcohol into the peroxidase impregnated cellulose mats through dialysis membranes. The results indicate that significant polymerization occurs within the mats. The resulting binary and ternary blends were imaged by scanning… CONTINUE READING
