Research collaboration at the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation discover new type of lignin in vanilla, cactus

Collaborators at The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Rutgers University and the University of Wisconsin have discovered a new type of lignin that holds the potential to be a new source of carbon fibers for manufacturing.

The discovery, which has been supported by the Department of Energy's BioEnergy Sciences Center and Great Lakes Bioenergy Center, has received widespread attention in the scientific community, including selection as the cover story for the upcoming issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, where the research is published, and an "editor's choice" story in an upcoming volume of Science magazine - two of the world's most cited multidisciplinary scientific journals.
