Significant quantities of arylopropane-1,3-diols have been identified in lignins isolated from a CAD-deficient pine mutant; smaller amounts are also present in lignins from normal pine. They arise from dihydroconiferyl alcohol via the action of peroxidases which are responsible for the radical generation steps of lignification. The structures in the complex lignin polymers are proven using 2D and 3D NMR of isolated lignin fractions.
