Abstract [en]

Thioacidolysis, periodate oxidation and size exclusion chromatography (SEC) were used for the analysis of spruce lignin samples. The standard thioacidolysis method was modified by including a pre-swelling of the lignocellulosic sample before the reaction, and this gave a higher yield of monomer products. Middle lamella and compression wood lignin was found to contain a larger amount of oligomers after thioacidolysis than normal wood lignin. Analysis by thioacidolysis of a thermomechanical pulp (TMP) revealed that approximately 10% of the beta-O-4 structures in the lignin were cleaved due to the mechanical grinding effect. From kraft pulp, the mixture of thioacidolysis products contains a major fraction having a considerably larger molecular mass than the products from spruce wood and TMP. The structure of this material is still unknown.
