Introduction
Delignification is the removal of the structural polymer lignin from plant tissue. It occurs in a dead cell through the activity of enzymes secreted by neighboring living cells or parasitic fungi cause, for example, white rot of woody plants. Wood decay fungi are unique because of their capacity to decompose lignified cell walls. A few species are of special interest because they can selectively remove lignin from wood without extensive cellulose degradation. Chemical Delignification damage is most commonly found in timber sections used as roof tile battens of buildings that are located in close proximity to the sea, large chemical factories or major arterial roads that have heavy traffic. It is used in industry to obtain cellulose. Removing lignin by chemical method still widely used mainly as a method of pulping industry and this process is very important in the industry of pulp and paper. Biopulping needed in the industry since delignification process can be environmentally friendly and reduce the cost of production. This special issue is to improve the dissemination of advanced research in the area of Delignification of wood. Original research papers are solicited in any aspect of Delignification of wood and their application.
