A comprehensive analysis of the relation of cellulose microfibril orientation and lignin content in the S2 layer of different tissue types of spruce wood (Picea abies (L.) Karst.)
A possible relation between cellulose microfibril angle and lignin content in the S2 layer was investigated by X-ray diffraction and cellular UV microspectrophotometry on spruce tissues [Picea abies] with different structural features and chemical composition. A strong correlation was not found, neither for the individual tissue types nor for the compiled data of all tissues. As the data did not confirm the findings in former studies, further examinations are necessary concerning a possible general interrelation between microfibril angle and lignin content.
