Vanillin is an aromatic aldehyde found as a component of lignocellulosic material, and in the cured pods of orchidaceae plants. Acid-washed glass beads, 0.5 mm diameter, (Precellys24®, Bertin Instruments, Montigny-le-Bretonneux, France) were added to the cell suspension, after which 0.5 mL of phenol:chloroform:isoamylalcohol (25:24:1) was added. Furthermore, the m/z peak at 177.0519 could be attributed to [Vanillyl alcohol + Na]+. 1993). In between each analysis, a post-run time of 1 min was used to purge the column. 1995; Shimizu et al.

Like other aromatic aldehydes that originate from lignin, vanillin is growth inhibitory to fungi at low concentrations (Adeboye et al. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00253-017-8209-5, White TJ, Bruns TD, Lee SB, Taylor JW (1990) Amplification and direct sequencing of fungal ribosomal RNA genes for phylogenetics.

Lignin is an abundant polymer in nature, a natural aromatic biomolecule present in lignocellulosic biomass, such as trees, shrubs and grass.
