Marutzky and Roffael (1977) discussed the conversions of [omega]-hydroxypropiovanillon into acetovanillon (retro-aldol reaction), [alpha]-(3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenyl)-glycerin-[beta]-guaiacylether into 3-methoxy-4-hydroxy-styryl-[beta]-guaiacylether (retro-Prins reaction) as well as [beta]-1-dilignol-units toward styryl derivatives (retro-Prins reaction) as potential delignification reactions, which also lead to the formation of formaldehyde.
