The Heterogeneity of Natural Lignin

  title={The Heterogeneity of Natural Lignin},
  author={O. P. Grushnikov and N. N. Shorygina},
The results of investigations of the molecular-weight distribution of lignin in the delignification of wood by various methods, modern ideas on the distribution of lignin in cell walls of plant tissues, and the presence of bonding between the lignin and the carbohydrate components are critically examined. The results obtained in the course of these investigations show that natural lignin evidently consists of two main components which differ in molecular weight, in their localisation in the… CONTINUE READING
