The decomposition of the hydrochloric acid lignin of the stems of the cotton plantGossypium hirsutum of variety 108-F by metallic sodium in liquid ammonia gives 3.8% of a mixture of phenols, among which the following were identified by GLC: dihydroeugenol, 4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenylpropan-1-ol, (4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)ethane, (4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl)propane, and 1-(4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl)ethanol, and also vanillin and vanillyl alcohol.
