Sinapyl alcohol may be employed in the preparation of lignin, a highly stable biopolymer.1

General description

Sinapyl alcohol, a monolignol, is a primary lignin monomer.2 It has been evaluated for anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities.3 It participates in the initial stages in the biosynthesis of lignin.4 Coupling reactions of sinapyl alcohol and sinapyl p-hydroxybenzoate has been reported.5 Preparation of sinapyl alcohol by selective 1,2-reduction of corresponding cinnamate esters using diisobutylaluminium hydride as reducing agent has been studied.6
