The structure of lignins isolated from the herbaceous plants sisal (Agave sisalana), kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus), abaca (Musa textilis) and curaua (Ananas erectifolius) has been studied upon spectroscopic (2D-NMR) and chemical degradative (Derivatization Followed by Reductive Cleavage) methods. The analyses demonstrate that the structure of the lignins from these plants is highly remarkable, being extensively acylated at the γ-carbon of the lignin side-chain (up to 80% acylation) with acetate and/or p-coumarate groups, and preferentially over syringyl units. While the lignins from sisal and kenaf are γ-acylated exclusively with acetate groups, the lignins from abaca and curaua are esterified with acetate and...

Different genetic programs that are active during late stages of zygotic
embryogenesis are involved in seed phenotypes as longevity, basal
thermotolerance, and desiccation tolerance. In sunflower, Heat Shock Factor A9
(HaHSFA9) controls one of such programs, the HaHSFA9 program. Overexpression
of HaHSFA9 in seeds of transgenic tobacco showed the
involvement of this transcription factor in basal thermotolerance and longevity;
HaHSFA9 activated a genetic program that includes specific small Heat Shock
Protein (sHSP) genes, which are expressed mainly (or exclusively) during
zygotic embryogenesis in seeds (Prieto-Dapena et al., 2006). We also used an
active-repressor dominant-negative (DN) form of HaHSFA9, and thus we
obtained a substantial reduction of both the accumulation of...

Lignin removal is a central issue in paper pulp manufacture, and production of other renewable chemicals, materials, and biofuels in future lignocellulose biorefineries. Biotechnology can contribute to more efficient and environmentally sound
deconstruction of plant cell wall by providing tailor-made biocatalysts based on the oxidative enzymes responsible for lignin attack in Nature. With this purpose, the already-known ligninolytic oxidoreductases are being improved using (rational and random-based) protein engineering, and still unknown enzymes will be identified by the application of the different ‘omics’ technologies. Enzymatic delignification will be soon at the pulp mill (combined with pitch removal) and our understanding of the...

The modification of smectitic clays with organic cations via cation-exchange reactions produces sorbents with an increased sorption capacity for organic compounds such as acidic herbicides. These organoclays (OCIs) could be used as carriers in controlled release formulations of herbicides to decrease their contamination potential. Various OCIs and two acidic herbicides (bentazone [3-isopropyl-1H-2,1,3-benzothiadiazin-4 (3H) one 2,2-dioxide] and dicamba [2-methoxy-3,6-dichlorobenzoic acid]) were selected and herbicide-OCI complexes were prepared by either sorbing the herbicides on the OCI from solution or by dry mixing of both components. Those preparations were assayed as controlled-release formulations under static (water solution) and dynamic (soil column leaching) conditions....

Solid-state fermentation of eucalypt wood with several fungal strains was investigated as a possible biological pretreatment for decreasing the content of compounds responsible for pitch deposition during Cl2-free manufacture of paper pulp. First, different pitch deposits were characterized by gas chromatography (GC) and GC-mass spectrometry (MS). The chemical species identified arose from lipophilic wood extractives that survived the pulping and bleaching processes. Second, a detailed GC-MS analysis of the lipophilic fraction after fungal treatment of wood was carried out, and different degradation patterns were observed. The results showed that some basidiomycetes that decreased the lipophilic fraction also released significant amounts...

The chemical composition of lipophilic extractives from Arundo donax stems (including nodes and internodes), used for pulp and papermaking, was studied. The lipid fraction was extracted with acetone and redissolved in chloroform, and then fractionated by solid-phase extraction (SPE) on aminopropyl-phase cartridges into four different fractions of increasing polarity. The total lipid extract and the resulting fractions were analysed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, using short- and medium-length high-temperature capillary columns, respectively. The main compounds identified in the fibres included series of long-chain n-fatty acids, n-alkanes, n-aldehydes, n-alcohols, monoglycerides, free and esterified sterols and triterpenols, steryl glucosides, steroid...

Wood is the main renewable material on Earth and is largely used as building material and in paper-pulp manufacturing. This review describes the composition of lignocellulosic materials, the different processes by which fungi are able to alter wood, including decay patterns caused by white, brown, and soft-rot fungi, and fungal staining of wood. The chemical, enzymatic, and molecular aspects of the fungal attack of lignin, which represents the key step in wood decay, are also discussed. Modern analytical techniques to investigate fungal degradation and modification of the lignin polymer are reviewed, as are the different oxidative enzymes (oxidoreductases) involved in...
