Abstract

This review article deals with the descriptions of contents, chemical coposition and structure of cinnamic acid derivatives, especially p-coumaric (PCA) and ferulic acid (FA) and lignin, together with their distribution within plants and cell walls. Furthermore, chemical linkages between lignin and cinnamic acid derivatives with structural carbohydrates are also described and basic characteristics of structurally and chemically altered lignins of brown midrib (BMR) and brittle culm mutants are mentioned.
