Abstract [en]

A method for the quantitative isolation of lignin-carbohydrate complexes (LCCs) in a softwood is presented. The isolation steps involve partial enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose, subsequent swelling in urea, and quantitative dissolution into four major fractions: (1) a galacto-glucomannan LCC containing similar to 8% of the wood lignin; (2) a glucane LCC containing similar to 4% of the wood lignin; (3) a xylan-lignin-glucomannan network LCC (xylan > glucomannan) containing similar to 40% of the wood lignin; and (4) a glucomannan-lignin-xylan network LCC (glucomannan) xylan) containing similar to 48% of the wood lignin. Endo-glucanase Novozyme 476, with only cellulase activity, and Ecopulp XM, with only xylanase and mannanase activities, were used as an enzymatic tool. From mildly ball-milled wood, all the lignin was isolated as LCCs. As a control, LCC was prepared from partially chlorite-delignified wood meal without ball milling, also in a mild procedure. The results were very similar to those obtained after ball milling. Thus, it can be safely concluded that the formation of new chemical linkages between lignin and carbohydrates during ball milling is improbable. Studies on isolated milled wood lignin (MWL) supported this conclusion and clearly showed that covalent linkages between lignin and carbohydrates are present. The study provide conclusive evidence of covalent linkages between lignin and carbohydrates in the native lignin in wood. It is concluded that carbohydrate-free lignin, i.e., lignin without covalent bonds to carbohydrates, probably cannot be present in spruce wood.

Abstract [en]

The chemical interactions between the main wood components i.e., cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin are of fundamental importance for understanding the chemical aspects of wood formation and its reactivity during fibre processing e.g during chemical pulping of wood. Future progress in the development of new high value products from wood will greatly depend on a detailed knowledge of how the fibre elements interact with each other in the biological material. The existence of covalent bonds between lignin and carbohydrates (LCC) has been one of the most controversial issues in the field of wood chemistry. Only until recently, the existence of such bonds has in its entirety been shown by way of indirect analyses, normally suffering from low yields obtained at rather drastic conditions. Furthermore, previous studies on LCC have been targeted on studying the specific lignin carbohydrate linkage and less emphasis has been put on the whole LCC networks. Detailed structural studies of entire LCC are therefore of importance in understanding the chemistry involved in wood formation and wood reactivity.

The aim of this study was to isolate intact LCC from wood and corresponding chemical pulps made from it in quantitative yield and to clarify their detailed chemical structure. For the first time, a method for the quantitative analysis of lignin-carbohydrate complexes (LCCs) in softwood is presented and it could be concluded that no carbohydrate-free lignin was present in these wood fibres. From mildly ball-milled wood, all lignin was isolated as LCCs in a sequence involving a partial enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose, subsequent swelling and quantitative dissolution, into 4 major fractions; a galactoglucomannan-lignin-pectin LCC (GalGlcMan-L-P) containing ~8% of the wood lignin, a glucane LCC (Glc-L) containing ~4% of the wood lignin, a xylan-lignin-glucomannan network LCC (Xyl-L-GlcMan) (with a predominance of xylan over glucomannan) containing ~40% of the wood and a glucomannan-lignin-xylan network LCC (GlcMan-L-Xyl) (with a predominance of glucomannan over xylan) containing ~48% of the wood lignin.

From unbleached kraft pulps, 85 - 90% of residual lignin was found to be chemically bonded to carbohydrates. The effect of the degree of delignification on the LCC types during kraft pulping and during subsequent oxygen stage was studied in order to understand the role of LCC for the stability of residual lignin. For both processes, high delignification rates were observed for the xylan-rich LCC and cellulose-rich LCC fractions, whereas the glucomannan-rich LCC was relatively stable. After a severe oxygen stage, almost all the residual lignin was isolated in the latter complex.

Thioacidolysis in combination with gas chromatography was used to determine the content of β-O-4 structures in the lignin. Periodate oxidation and methanol determinations were used to quantify the phenolic hydroxyl groups, whereas size exclusion chromatography (SEC) of the thioacidolysis fractions was used to monitor any differences between the original molecular size distribution and that after the delignification processes. Major differences between the various LCC fractions were observed, clearly indicating that two different forms of lignin are present in the wood fibre wall. These forms are linked to glucomannan and xylan respectively. The xylan linked lignin was found to consist largely of β-O-4 structures indicating a rather linear coupling mode, whereas the glucomannan linked lignin was more heterogeneous with respect to the known lignin inter-unit linkage types. Based on these findings, a modified arrangement of the fibre wall polymers is suggested. From acid sulfite pulp (Kappa number 11) residual lignin was isolated at ~80% yield on LCC basis. About 60% was linked to xylan, 30% to glucomannan and 10% to glucans. These values differ greatly from those obtained for softwood pulped to a similar kappa number by the Kraft method. Model compound studies indicated that the benzyl ether type of LC linkage were likely to survive cleavage at the acidic sulfite pulping conditions
