Abstract

Most of the plants growing all over the world are typical biotechnology works of lignocellulosic natural polymer. They can be divided into three groups: annual, biannual and perennial plants. The lignocellulosic materials of perennial origin are e.g. wood and bamboo. Wood as lignocellulosic material has been used for centuries for different applications: as a fuel, construction material, and later as a chemical raw material, mainly for pulp and fiber as well as particleboards and some fine chemical products.

Keywords
