Derivatization and analysis of lo molecular weight lignin acidolysis products


A method for the derivatization of low molecular weight lignin acidolysis product by reduction-acetylation is described. Borane dimethyl sulfide complex has been used as reducing agent. The derivatives could be analysed by gas chromatography.
