Enzymatic oxidation of lignin and compounds modeling it. I. Investigation of the peroxidase oxidation of lignin by the chemiluminescence method

In the enzymatic oxidation of lignin, superweak fluorescence is detected which confirms the radical mechanism of peroxidase-catalyzed oxidation. The rate constants of the recombination and disproportionation of the radicals have been calculated. Both the degradation and the partial polymerization of the initial substance have been established by the gel filtration of the lignin oxidation products.
