In this particular case of what sounds like a photochemical reaction of lignin with oxygen, how is a chromophore produced? Or, is it really even true that a chromophore is responsible for the yellow color of yellowed paper? Or is it the oxidation and loss of a fluorophore that was originally making the paper look white?

Genome-Wide Identification of Sorghum bicolor Laccases

Laccase is a key enzyme in plant lignin biosynthesis as it catalyzes the final step of monolignols polymerization. Sweet sorghum Sorghum bicolor L. Moench is considered as an ideal feedstock for ethanol production, but lignin greatly limits the production efficiency. No comprehensive analysis on laccase has ever been conducted in S. bicolor, although it appears as the most promising target

Color reduction of sulfonated eucalyptus kraft lignin

Lignin dispersant prepared from soda lignin or kraft lignin is usually obtained by the sulfonation of lignin. In some cases modifications are conducted after sulfonation to reduce the color 18 , 19 .

Lignin Modification Leads to Increased Nodule Numbers in

Reduction of lignin levels in the forage legume alfalfa Medicago sativa by down-regulation of the monolignol biosynthetic enzyme hydroxycinnamoyl coenzyme A:shikimate hydroxycinnamoyl transferase HCT results in strongly increased digestibility and processing ability of lignocellulose. However, these modifications are often also associated with dwarfing and other changes in plant growth.

Characterization and performance of a novel lignin-based

The application and modification of natural lignin in water treatment have attracted significant attention recently. An environmental friendly lignin-based flocculant LBF with enhanced flocculation effect was prepared from paper mill sludge in this work.


Sulfonated lignin and lignosulfonate color reductions of over 90 percent, and in some cases as high as 95 percent, are achieved by a two-step process involving the blocking of phenolic groups on the lignin molecule with known blocking agents followed by oxidation with chlorine dioxide. The light colored lignin dispersants produced by the invention process exhibit very low staining and low azo

Improvement of biomass through lignin modification.

Improvement of biomass through lignin modification. The knowledge gained from these bioengineering efforts has greatly improved our understanding of the optimal lignin characteristics required for various applications of lignocellulosic materials while also contributing to our understanding of the lignin biosynthetic pathway. The recent

The Nature of Lignin

Some of the residual lignin that used to be removed by bleaching is now being removed in some pulp mills by extended delignification, which Smook defines as "Kraft pulping modification within a continuous digester which utilizes a two-stage, partially counter-current cooking sequence to achieve lower kappa number and improved overall washing

Lignin is a class of complex organic polymers that form key structural materials in the support tissues of vascular plants and some algae. Lignins are particularly important in the formation of cell walls, especially in wood and bark, because they lend rigidity and do not rot easily.Chemically, lignins are cross-linked phenolic polymers.

Lignin engineering through laccase modification: a

As lignin directly limits the fermentation yield, its removal by pretreatment or modification prior to enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation would be advantageous. Genetic engineering of plant cell wall has been considered as a promising strategy for desirable lignin content and/or composition towards higher biofuel production 5 .

Chemical Modification, Properties, and Usage of Lignin

It is commonly known that lignin is the main cause of color change. Due to its optical characteristics lignin is a good absorber of light of various wavelengths compared to other wood compounds

Reduction of lignin color via one-step UV irradiation

The dark color of industrial lignin is the main obstacle for their high value-added use in areas such as sunscreen or dyestuff dispersants. Here, a one-step method for reducing the color of lignin is presented and the structural changes of the whitened lignin are characterized by UV, FTIR, NMR, GPC, DLS, AFM, HS-GC and potentiometric titration.

Lignin Degradation Processes and the Purification of

Lignin is a heterogeneous, phenolic and polydisperse biopolymer which resists degradation due to its aromatic and highly branched structure. Lignin is the most abundant renewable source of aromatic molecules on earth. The valorization of lignin could therefore provide a sustainable alternative to petroleum refineries for the production of valuable aromatic compounds.
