A further understanding of lignin structure from herbaceous crops is needed for advancing technologies of lignocellulosic biomass processing and utilization. A method was established in this study for analyzing structural motifs found in milled straw lignin (MSL) and cellulase-digested lignin (CEL) isolated from wheat straw by combining quantitative 13C and HSQC NMR spectral analysis. The results showed that guaiacyl (G) was the predominant unit in wheat straw cell wall lignin over syringyl (S) and hydroxyphenyl (H) units. Up to 8.0 units of tricin were also detected in wheat straw lignin per 100 aromatic rings. Various inter-unit linkages, including β-O-4, β-5, β¬- β', β-1, α, β-diaryl ether, 5-5'/4-O-β' as well as potential lignin-carbohydrate complex (LCC) bonds, were identified and quantified. These findings provide useful information for development of bio-fuels and lignin based materials.
