2. Lignins are a big topic in biologically based fine chemicals, foods, and polymers.

As phenolic, and thus acidic compounds, they can be corrosive and can also oxidize, and this is a problem with "bio-oils" from thermolysis approaches. But a lot of work is being done with them. I usually come across five or six papers a month, not that I actually read them all, since they're not, in general, an area on which I focus.
