Lignin forms the woody cell walls of plants and the cement material between the plant walls, and after cellulose, it is the second most abundant biopolymer in the world. This book examines the biochemistry of lignin formation, lignin modification and utilization as a polymer, lignin in pulping and bleaching, chemical and physical properties of lignin, and lignin biodegradation.
