AbstractThe chemical composition of lignin and lipids of bast fibers from kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus) used for high-quality paper pulp production was studied. Pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (Py-GC/MS) of fibers showed a lignin with high syringyl:guaiacyl ratio (5.4) and minor amounts of p-hydroxyphenyl units. Simultaneously, sinapyl and coniferyl acetates were also identified, indicating that this lignin is partially acetylated. p-Hydroxycinnamic acids were only found in trace amounts. The main lipids identified by GC/MS of extracts from kenaf fibers were series of long chain n-fatty acids, waxes, n-alkanes and n-fatty alcohols. Free and esterified sterols and triterpenols, steroid hydrocarbons, steroid and triterpenoid ketones, as well as steryl glycosides were also found. Finally, the fate of the main constituents of kenaf fibers in alkaline pulping was also investigated.
