To provide proof that tricin is involved in lignification and establish the mechanism bywhich it incorporates into the lignin polymer, the 4¢-O-b coupling products of tricinwith themonolignols (p-coumaryl, coniferyl, and sinapyl alcohols) were synthesized alongwith the trimer that would result fromits 4¢-O-b-couplingwith sinapyl alcohol and then coniferyl alcohol. Tricinwas also found to cross couplewithmonolignols to form tricin-(4¢-O-b)-linked dimers in biomimetic oxida...
