An investigation of the hydrochloric acid lignin of cotton stems

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


1. The lignin has been isolated from the stems of the cotton plant of a late period of vegetation by the hydrochloric acid method. The elementary composition and functional groups have been determined. The mean composition for a C6-C3 structural unit has been determined.

2. By the oxidation of a powder of the stems of the cotton plant with nitrobenzene in the presence of alkali it has been established that the hydrochloric acid lignin is more condensed than the DLA.
