     LIGNIN is a complex material, C41 H32 O6, with four hydroxyl and four
methoxyl groups. It melts at 250 to 275C. It's a crystalline product
recovered from paper-pulp sulfite liquor, and used in plastics, corrosion
inhibitors, adhesives coatings, rubber, compressed wood products, etc. It's
used to made many other products.  LIGNIN has several forms (i.e. Indulin,
Tomlinite, Lignosol), depending on its source and how it is processed.
     If you want specific information, your best source would be a
manufacturer of a specific product.

Good Luck,
Rick Duvall
