Microbial degradation of lignin

What is lignin? Lignin is a group of complex aromatic polymers resulting from the oxidative combination of 4-hydroxyphenylpropanoids. Lignin is a phenolic polymer that is amorphous, irregular three-dimensional, and high branches. The process of biosynthesis of lignin results from the radical coupling reactions of monomers to form cross-linked phenol polymer. Lignin is an essential component of the lignocellulosic biomass where …
