Schematic representation of the main components of wood: a cellulose, b xylan (main component of hemicelluloses), c lignin. Hemicelluloses acetyl groups (–OOC–CH3) are not shown in b since the O-acetyl substitution can occur at any of the hydroxyl position in xylan. c Corresponds to a syringyl dimer. Replacement of the methoxyl groups –OCH3 given in parenthesis by a hydrogen atom leads to the guaiacyl structure
