  • A. A. Geronikaki
  • Kh. A. Abduazimov


1. The developed semiempirical formula for the dioxane lignin from the stems ofAlthaea rhyticarpa has been found from the results of elementary and functional analyses.

2. It has been shown that the lignin consists of high- and low-molecular-weight fractions.

3. It has been shown by the nitrobenzene oxidation method that p-coumaryl, guaiacyl, and syringyl structural units are present in the lignin.
