Lignin is one of the most abundant organic polymers on earth, exceeded only by cellulose. Cellulose is an important structural component of the primary cell wall of green plants. Lignin enhances plant cell wall rigidity, hydrophobic properties and promotes minerals transport through the vascular bundles in plant. In addition, lignin is an important barrier that protects against pests and pathogens. Lignin is commercially obtained during the chemical pulping processes.
