Lignans


Lignans are a group of chemical compounds found in plants. Plant lignans are polyphenolic substances derived from phenylalanine via dimerization of substituted cinnamic alcohols (see cinnamic acid), known as monolignols, to a dibenzylbutane skeleton. This reaction is catalysed by oxidative enzymes and is often controlled by dirigent proteins.
